Agreed. In fact if the ERC maintainer(s) could take a look at this, it
would be greatly appreciated. The original patch was simple but too hard
to turn off, while the second version from Vibhav introduced too many
new configuration options IMO.  Something that fits better with ERC's
existing configuration would be best, as Josh suggested.  I'll stay out
of it to avoid confusing the issue further.
