m_services.c     --  This module will add services hook support to hybrid. It
                     will add secure messaging aliases to services like such
                     as NickServ, OperServ and so on. It also adds SVSNICK
                     support to allow NickServ to change nicknames should
                     a user fail to identify or if an operator chooses
                     to want to change a user's nickname if it is offensive.
                     To use the aliases simply do ServiceName without MSG,
                     e.g. /NickServ IDENTIFY instead of /MSG NickServ IDENTIFY.

                     Syntax: SVSNICK <nickname> <newnick>

                     Example: SVSNICK fsck lamer

You will need to edit file and change services path to meet your needs.

np: Sensation White 2005 "Marco V Live 03-07-2005"
