Excuse my ignorance please, but can you be a bit more details?  It is
years ago that I knew the IRC protocl by heart.  But I vaguely remember
that user-modes as well as channel-modes did not need any special client
side support?  /op is really just an alias for /mode nick +flag, IIRC.

I don't see any reason to not add this, if special code is actually
required.  Since ERC is part of Emacs, the same contribution
requirements as with Emacs apply.
