Revisiting an old feature request I'm sure was made eons ago.

Would it be possible today to leave a channel's nicklist populated with names for channels Kept Open upon being kicked, parted or disconnected?

This is especially user friendly for reaching out to channel operators (or observing a channel takeover) by observing the names in the nicklist for more than a split second.

I understand this has internal implications for the IAL and old script compatibility utilizing $nick(#,N) and expecting $null returns. I'm hoping this can be compensated for.

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