More recalcitrant here than busy.  I've been waiting for the merge to 
happen to find it a new home since nobody has been willing to take it 
from me.  I lost interest when the patches to support multiline as per 
CTCP have taken ages to get committed upstream and I think it was 
rejected finally and I got bored of constantly merging it back in. 
Maybe someone can resurrect and champion it in.

I'll accept a co-maintainer for now in good faith if someone wants it. 
The above patch would be great to get back into xchat and would give me 
some reason to start caring again.

Any one want to step to the plate?
