Please implement "onotice" (chanop-only notices) support
Some IRCds have support for PRIVMSGs and NOTICEs sent only to channel operators. These are known as omsg/onotices, and some clients have /omsg and /onotice commands to send them.
Notices are sent as follows:
NOTICE @#channel :Foo
and are recieved only by channel operators as follows:
:nick!user@host NOTICE @#channel :Foo
Privmsgs are similar to this.
On IRCds with extended prefix support, sending messages to only admins/owners may also be possible.
Also, can someone please implement the /notice command? Or at least include a default alias for it.

onotices are displayed in the channel
omsgs are displayed in a query buffer as recommended
/notice has been implemented. /notice needs always a target as the first param. i.e. "/notice hi there" will send a notice "there" to user "hi".

Reposting my previous comment properly because the formatting ate it:
Further to this I notice that when sending a notice to @#channel, the outgoing notice appears in the status window rather than the channel it's being addressed to. I'm guessing this is by design though as technically the target @#channel does not match #channel so shouldn't be directed there.
Thanks for displaying onotices in the channel though. Many other clients don't do this, and it renders the feature next to useless as they appear as private messages instead.
