I configured bitlbee today and saw the word "himself" in bitlbee.conf.

Please apply submitted patch for a gender neutral configuration file for one of the best programs since sliced bread and IRC.

Heh, good point. Fixed, and I also did a quick grep for similar issues. It looks like this was the only thing.

Perhaps "themselves" would be better than "itself"?

+1, a person is not typically reffered to as 'it'. It's perfectly acceptable in English to use the plural term "them" in a singular manner when referring to a person whose gender is unknown.
