This allows the BNC to automatically identify to nickserv and other ircd services. By Sandro Hummel.

For the most part this script needs no modification although modifying the default values in the script might be useful in certain situations.

All configuration of this script can be done once it is loaded, and be done by the average user using the /sbnc set command.
Users can also use the /sbnc authmanual command to manually authenticate.
