Eggheads: +a channel vs chanuser modes

Some of the networks I've used have +a meaning 'channel admin'. The problem
comes when a user's access on channel services is so high that they only
receive +a and not +o, so eggdrop can't see the user (or itself) as an op.

On IRCNet +a stands for anonymous, and is only available on !channels.
People cannot see each other, everything what is said on cannel looks
like is send from somebody who have nick "anonymous".

I don't think that many people actually use this mode, since it's not
really useful for normal channels.
Maybe on other networks it have different meaning.
