The reason why bot is using bouncers isn't better stability from network point
of view, but because its core is frequently patched and restarted.

Because I don't want wm-bot to reconnect to freenode and rejoin these 180
channels everytime (putting heavy load on freenode as well) I am using
bouncers. It has nothing to do with network connectivity, it just prevents
annoying quit / joins as well as holes in channel logs.
