   I think I was not clear about what my problem is. The bots are on two different hosts, linked together to keep a single IRCnet channel.
   The problem is, that only three servers are available, let's call them A, B and C.
   If I configure both to use set A, B and C, then bots will eventually wind up connected to the same server and when server goes down, they will lose ops.
   If I configure one to use e.g. A and B and other one to use C, then when server C goes down, the other bot is disconnected and unable to reconnect.
   My idea would be, that the bot's would inform each other on which server they are and if they are on the same one, one of them would do a jump.
