To list channels we can do: 'chan l'. This is not easy to parse with scripting. Therefore i'd like to have /list so I can support multiple control channels for etc.

Is it really that hard to parse?

Problem with /list is it won't tell you which channel's a control channel and you probably do want to know that.

Well, it is a bit harder to parse. I have to send (raw) 'chan l' to root or nickserv, then fetch all the replies till 'End of channel list'.

I've been doing that before, but it feels very hacky. Can't we use & as control channels and # as chat channels anytime?

Nope, those are just defaults. One can manually change the type using chan set. Could make this impossible but I don't like that idea, especially if at some point a third channel type would appear. (Not sure if that'd ever happen!)

What about channel titles then?

'This is a BitlBee control channel (Work) for account jabber1' 'This is a BitlBee chatroom ( for account jabber4'

And this is not even usefull for scripts, but also it you are browsing through your channels.

Last, but certainly not least idea. It's even the best! Give special channels special chanmodes!

( maybe change the title of this ticket? )
