Funky stuff, I'm sure I'll annoy you with an obscure bug I dig up
shortly ;)

As for Irssi2, looks very interesting, I may be tinkering with it

Gonna see if I can write a minor patch for dovecot this week so that we
can see number of messages downloading in a pop3 session in the logfile.
Similar to the way UW does it, will be very useful for us at work trying
to trace customers POP problems, I will submit it if anyone will find it
