[ircd-ratbox] Re: Feature request2: +d channel mode, gecos ban

Random thought: what if we made the ban syntax allow an addition:

nick!user at host[|gecos]

This way we don't add another mode at all, no second list of bans, ...

Also, what do you do when the GECOS has a space, colon or other special
char?  Just something to consider...
