It turns out this was a very popular option, so we've gone ahead and
performed this for all channels registered with accessbot.  If you're in
a channel that still needs this, please add it to the accessbot channel
list[1] and let us know in #openstack-infra.

Also, if folks would be willing to lurk in #openstack-unregistered to
help anyone who ends up there by surprise and is unfamiliar with how to
register with nickserv, that would be great.
