Such behavior would contradict the IRC RFC.  Basically, this means that 
anything that did this would not be IRC.  Fortunately for you, nobody 
cares about that anymore.  Though it is not included in the ircd itself, 
I'm sure there are patches out there to do what you are asking.

One minor clarification, generally "opers" refers to IRC operators, and 
"ops" refers to channel operators.  I am assuming you meant ops.
