The goal for IdealIRC is to provide a modern compliance of the IRC protocol. It aims to be a simple IRC client
with only the bare minimum for comfort implemented. The intent is to extend the client using scripts.

There is also IRCv3 support which fixes some of the issues with the protocol, such as:
- Account tracking using "account-notify" and "extended-join"
- Away notifications.
- Invite notifications - Allows privileged channel users to see when someone is invited to their channel.
- Multiple prefixes - Mitigates a bug in the IRC protocol where users with with multiple privileges only listed
the most significant privilege.
- Userhosts in /NAMES
