not sure why "has patch" wasn't set already :/

What do others think? Is this a good idea? What do other IRCds do?

We have to think of the general population (users, not devs or ircops): would this information be helpful to them, or would it be yet another 'useless' WHOIS line to the already large WHOIS output?

For users, there wouldn't be much benefit. A well-behaved client should keep track of user modes and show them on-demand/permanently somewhere anyway. Then again, I assume not all clients are well-behaved and thus there might be some value for a very small portion of users (web clients in particular come to mind). Therefore, I'd say it's not really all that important.

It is useful because it shows the snomask. Not all IRC clients understand the snomask.
