hybrid hasnt allowed +w for users in a long long time, it did nothing but
confuse users.  I've lost track of the amount of times ive seen "STOP
HACKING ME!!!!" because lusers see "Remote CONNECT" in their status window
and dont know what it actually is.

Differentiating between them was pretty pointless, they were both only shown
to opers and (iirc) some servers at the time didnt allow WALLOPS from opers,

The only thing the differentiation was really achieving was taking the piss
out of newbie opers who used WALLOPS rather than OPERWALL..
