Enabling +e/+I will break UltimateIRCd and any IRCd that uses +I and
+e for other purposes than invites and exempts.
When the bot first joins a channel, it sends MODE #chan +I and MODE
#chan +e. Well, on ultimate, this sets +I (anti-invites) on the
channel, which is extremely undesirable.
Halfop is not comparable, because it's just extra parsing in NAMES,
or passive support. +e/+I support are actually setting modes on the
channel, or active support.
By the way, why does the bot send +e and +I, rather than just e or I
without the plus-sign?
And why does net-type 5 enable +e/+I in 1.6.16? It doesn't in
