Summary0004335: Implement bcrypt password hashing method
DescriptionBasically a hashing algorithm that will use XYZ rounds. That makes cracking passwords take a lot more time, making it more secure.

Note that we shouldn't use TOO many rounds, it's not like we want the IRCd to spend 100ms per /OPER attempt.. otherwise you can DoS it down with just 10 attempts per second ;)

See and various other sources (I think I even made an implementation once.. I better look it up).

Currently we only use 1 round, but it's salted. That's good, but it can be better if we use this also.
