Hi Gavin,

Fair enough call with respect to static password.

The module I found seems to have been written for an earlier version of
ircd-hybrid - do you know of a more recent version that'll compile with
the current codebase?

End result is I basically don't want every web user appearing with the
webserver's host details in a way that'll still allow normal ban/whois
etc. info
