Allows users to get a personal custom-named bot into their channels with additional channel management capabilities, e.g. additional monitoring of the channels against floods, repetitions, caps writing, and swearing, and taking appropriate actions. It might also implement additional commands, e.g. also some that are said aloud in the channel (like !op, !deop, !voice, !devoice, !kick, and many others) or send a short greet message when an user joins a channel, or even "take over" typical ChanServ actions such as auto-opping users, saying the entry notice to be set by the channel owner and so on.
