Summary0006310: Make /WATCH and /MONITOR entry list sizes customizable.
DescriptionBoth /WATCH and /MONITOR entry lists are hard-coded in UnrealIRCd to 128. While this may seem relatively large, some people may want to lower it to save system resources, or make it higher. InspIRCd allows entry size customization for both. I don't feel things like this should be hard-coded into the IRCd. We want to discourage people from modifying source code.
TagsNo tags attached.

I highly doubt that someone will have more than 128 users on their WATCH/MONITOR list.

With that said, I understand lowering for saving resources, although I suppose that the resources consumed are proportional to the number of total entries.

I'm okay with an option to lower this but to increase it may bring some issues with botnet attacks if hundreds of bots start adding hundreds of entries.

Yeah I'm fine with that.
