Summary0006034: chanmode +f: support for action 'd' in floodtype 'm' (and maybe others)
DescriptionWhen trying to set /mode #chan +f [50m#d,20t#d]:10
it translates to [50m,20t#d]:10 even though 'd' is listed in /helpop chmodef as a valid option for 'm'

Ah, yeah, that's a documentation mistake for floodtype 'm'.

We could consider adding more action 'd' support, though, than just for floodtypes 't' and 'r'. It's basically a throttle at the specified value (X per Y), rather than taking an action after X per Y.
The downside of it is that it is less visible to everyone (including chanops) that things are being throttled/limited. So if your floodtype 'm' with action 'd' is too tight, the chanops may not notice that some messages are missing from users. That could be countered by sending a notice to the chanops about it, but that kinda contrasts with the silentless of the 'd' action.
We can think about it, though...

    Don't mention action 'd' in HELPOP CHMODEF for floodtype 'm', as this
    is not supported at the moment.
