Level 2.

mIRC should do away with the .ini format for servers, and switch to an .xml format instead. Still using a single CRLF delimited line for each server entry, each member can be uniquely named with quoted fields that are easily extensible over time. Addition of new fields like "Last-modified" time, "Added-on" time, would become possible without causing a bunch of compatibility problems.

Drop-in compatibility would be as simple as mirc.exe first detecting for .xml files, and failing that, detecting for obsolete .ini files instead.

Well. At least I won lunch.
Good philosophy, see good in bad, I like!
