The multi-prefix Client Capability

When requested, the multi-prefix client capability will cause the IRC server to send all possible prefixes which apply to a user in NAMES and WHO output.

These prefixes MUST be in order of ‘rank’, from highest to lowest.

Example:

--> NAMES #tethys
:hades.arpa 353 guest = #tethys :~&@%+aji &@Attila @+alyx +KindOne Argure
:hades.arpa 366 guest #tethys :End of /NAMES list

--> WHO #test
:kenny.chatspike.net 352 guest #test grawity broken.symlink *.chatspike.net grawity H@%+ :0 Mantas M.
:kenny.chatspike.net 315 guest #test :End of /WHO list
