Summary: lack of mode display in SILC and IRC plugins

Initial Comment:
I miss the display of user and channel modes in SILC
and IRC plugins. In IRC you can get user modes with the
/names command (which is not so much fun when there are
many users in the channel, as /names does not format
very well), in SILC you cannot gain any information
about user modes at all - except for mode changes (at
least I didn't find a way). 

There is no way to get information about channel modes
either (I just found out: /mode works in IRC, but not
in SILC).

You can get a users away status in SILC with adding him
to the buddy list and looking at the mouseover popup,
but not in IRC. You cannot get the away message of a
user who is away.

I'd purpose using @ and + for +o and +v in the user
list like it is commonly used in chat clients, maybe
even a solution with little green and yellow icons like
xchat <www.xchat.org> has them. Furthermore a /whois
command would be nice, or just including more
information in the "Info" from a user's context menu.

Channel modes could be displayed in the tab "(+pt)
#mychannel", but a /mode-command for silc would be

As I described in a duplicate 1267599. There is also a
problem at least related to IRC channels -- yes, with /mode
you can set various things, also add masks to the ban list
(+b) (on IRCnet you also have an invites (+I), exceptions
(+e) and reop (+r) list that work the same way). But there
is no nice way to see any of this lists! You need to use the
Debug screen and look at the lines starting with "irc:
Unrecognized message".

So, a solution to all this would be some sort of IRC channel
modes setting window/tab and should (as I said in the
duplicate) allow a user to: enable the set the topic,
channel modes (+t, +n, +m, +i, +k <key>, +l <#num>, +p
|| +s) and showing, removing and adding to the lists:
at least ban list (+b), but can also for exceptions
(+e), invites (+I), reop (+r) list (avalible on IRCnet).

Most of this is addressed already:
User modes are now displayed in the user list in IRC, SILC
and Jabber as of Gaim 0.81
Channel modes can be seen in irc with /mode and in SILC with
/whois is implemented for both IRC and SILC, and has been
for a while, and this shows user's away message on IRC and
away status on SILC

I think the only remaining item is that channel modes are
not displayed in the tab or title, and that's more of an RFE
than a bug :)
