*One* properly configured eggdrop is all it takes to solve the problems
of both time-separated one-to-one (notes module) and one-to-many
(flagnotes module) messaging, although as such it is just a more

readily be placed by an eggdrop into a directory where they may be
retrieved by users with the proper flags.
