It would appear that public confrontation in this manner did not stimulate 
any reasonable response.  I suggest the following:

1) ratbox says there are compatibility issues present with Hybrid (and 
vice versa).  This will inform networks such as EfNet not to use Hybrid 
since they're mostly ratbox these days.  (Note that explaining the reason 
for incompatibility is pointless... nobody really cares why, people just 
want to know what issues exist)

2) ratbox provides a function that enables support for hybrid in the 
configuration file.  (hybrid_tb_support = yes;)

3) ratbox auto-detects hybrid and performs the aforementioned operation 

( Biggest security gap -- an open mouth )
