Support server-time client capability specification

There is a recent specification which allows IRC servers to inform clients of the actual timestamp of a message:

Not many clients support this new specification, yet. To my knowledge only Textual, WeeChat and ZNC. However it would be a nice alternative to the display_timestamp setting. It would ease the integration of BitlBee and the IRC client by eliminating the need for an additional script parsing and rendering the timestamp.

That's pretty neat. Yes, will do this and look at what else IRCv3 does/adds. looks interesting for example.

I just noticed that there's no server-time in capability list. Is this still planned or has to be enabled somehow?
