Make wm-bot use SSL
Open, LowPublic

Description

If you will use /whois wm-bot (and its sister wm-bots), you will notice that wm-bot is not using SSL in IRC. Although not needed for many, it will be nice if wm-bot will be using SSL. Without this, wm-bot cannot join channels with +S (channels where only users using SSL may join), even if you use auto-invite (I tested this in my personal channel). This forces ops of a channel that has +S to unset +S, making the channel vulnerable to some security attacks.
