Agreed that this would be nice, but there is no such thing as a query topic on the IRC protocol level. It's up the IRC client what text is put in (usually) the top line of your console. BitlBee could only modify the hostmask of the client to include an away state but that sounds dirty. :-/

The only way to modify a hostmask atm, in a clean way, is quit/join, which is rather undesirable. There's also the CHGHOST ircv3.2 extension but that requires client-side support (bitlbee doesn't have ircv3.2 support yet either).

And that would be the dirty way, like wilmer said.

So closing this since it's not really possible for us to do (as a server). You might want to try some client-side scripting though.
