Holla Dominic,

can't tell you much about Hybserv, but as far as I know, it still works 
good so far with the latest hybrid release. From what I have heard, 
SVSNICK (or the forced-nickchange-mechanism in general), does not longer 
work in Hybserv, and leads to a services crash. But this is just because 
the ircd's SVSNICK command now requires 3 parameters instead of 2; so 
this can be fixed easily.
