Makes sense to me. I would eventually like to move the entire
`erc-ignore' group and all the lurker business into sub libraries.

It would be nice to add tests for ERC's Customize setup, but I don't
know how to do so in a way that won't contaminate the global test
environment. I wonder if the Customize crew could provide some sort of
rubric for going about this.

Whoever installs this needs to add "(Bug#68601)" somewhere.

This appears to have been munged in transit:

Or I'm not saving the message properly. In either case, using
git-format-patch(1) and manually attaching the goods may make things
smoother in the future. For this patch, I've just unfolded the one line
by hand.

It'd be great if Customize allowed definitions to easily request that
print forms of values be displayed alongside their :tag, especially in
"value menus."

I will install this eventually if no one else does.


P.S. Any progress on bug#43847 "ERC - prevent yanking multiple lines
into IRC (feature request) *patch*"?
