IRC server with multiserver support

'ctrlproxy' is an IRC server with multiserver support. It runs as a daemon and connects to a number of IRC servers, then lets you to connect from a workstation and work as the user who is logged in to the IRC server. After you disconnect, it maintains the connection to the server. It acts like any normal IRC server, so you can use any IRC client to connect to it. It supports multiple client connections to one IRC server (under the same nick), so you can connect to IRC using your IRC nick, even if you have an IRC session open somewhere else. It supports logging (in the same format as the irssi IRC client), password authentication, and ctcp (in case no clients are connected).
