Eggheads: suggestion

1. I quite like this idea.

2. The trouble is with this is that an eggdrop would have to be written 
to do this to every IRC network. Far easier is to write a TCL ban script 
which can do this, then you can have it set up to match 
* etc.

3. Using an authnick to identify users isn't as secure as using 
hostmasks - if someone finds out a user's auth password and auths to 
their account, then they can gain access to the eggdrop. Using a 
hostmask, only someone using their connection can access the eggdrop.
