How to reserve a nickname?

NickServ is a service that runs seperate from the ircd in most cases.
A resv (sometimes called a jupe) is for denying anyone from accessing
the nickname. For example, if you don't run services such as nickserv,
you might resv the nickname "NickServ" to prevent a user from taking
that nickname and gathering passwords that other users msg it by

I'm not aware off the top of my head of any services such as NickServ
that you can run on top of hybrid. Perhaps other list members can be
of more help with that.

In God we trust,
Everybody else must have an x.509 certificate.
