Having looked through the code a bit, but not tried running it, I note
the following:

- General code and config file seems clean

- Having commands like /stats and /admin work on services is cool. It
  seems like that more such commands working than in hybserv.

- Operators are defined with oper{} blocks while ircd-ratbox uses
  operator{} blocks

- Alis omits +p channels; ircd-hybrid7 /LIST, ircd-ratbox /LIST,
  www.efnet.info/?module=channels don't do that and it seems to be
  intended that way

- Am I right that operbot is meant as a centralized version of
  OPME/OJOIN? (possibly substitute a less restricted version of OPME)

- There are no channel settings (in chanserv) other than bans and
  access. Modelock, autoop, autovoice could be useful.
