... For which a simple sed script, which you can even assign to a hotkey 
(at least in kde) if you are so inclined, or even make it part of a pan 
wrapper script so it runs as part of pan's startup, will work fine.

None-the-less, while I think you overstate the case, as I've stated, IMO 
the GNKSA 4-connection limit should have never been added in the first 
place, as by the time it was, servers by necessity had already set the 
connection limits server-side, and such a patch is indeed in order, but 
only after some decision has been made on what to do with GNKSA in 
general.  Regardless of whether that decision is to dump GNKSA entirely, 
make a single deliberate exception, or create a new version, it needs 
done and the pan site's GNKSA language needs updated accordingly.  THEN 
the patch will be appropriate. =:^)
