Description

When I'm using smuxi in the client/server model, it would be stellar if I could configure a client-disconnect behavior, such as changing my nick from mtaylor to mtaylor|away (which is one common practice) or marking away (another common practice) - especially if it could undo that for me once I log back in.

00:11:04 <meebey> the auto-change of nick I do not like to support as that's bad practice in IRC where the nick is the unique identifier
00:11:16 <meebey> and the away flag exists for exactly that purpose
00:11:34 <meebey> is it ok if smuxi only supports the setting the away flag without changing nick?
00:12:16 <mtaylor> well, it is your program and not mine at the end of the day ... :)
00:12:40 <meebey> sure, but you requested it :)
00:12:52 <meebey> assuming that both things are not supported
00:12:57 <mtaylor> I know of many groups that live on nick status changes ... even though it's not best practice
00:13:02 <meebey> is one of that good enough for your needs?
00:13:06 <mtaylor> yes
00:13:35 <meebey> ok
00:14:27 <meebey> mtaylor: with plugins we can later support features that I dont like to have as a core feature ;) so dont worry
