NAME
     pounce – IRC pouncer :3

DESCRIPTION
     pounce is a multi-client, TLS-only IRC bouncer.  It takes a simple
     approach, using a multiple-consumer ring buffer and the IRCv3.2
     server-time extension to communicate with clients.

     pounce requires LibreSSL (-ltls) and targets FreeBSD.  It can also be
     built on Darwin or GNU/Linux by copying the appropriate file to config.mk
     and modifying as needed.  On FreeBSD, processes are sandboxed with
     capsicum(4).  On other systems, who knows what might happen?

RATIONALE
     As a former znc(1) user, I was dissatisfied with the multi-client
     experience it offered.  I wanted to connect from both my laptop and my
     phone and have full chat history on both.  With znc(1), my options were
     either having both clients spammed with redundant history every time they
     connect, or having one client consume the buffer and the other get no
     history at all.

     With a multiple-consumer ring buffer, each client has its own place in
     the history and can be brought up to date independently.  Additionally,
     by expecting clients to implement the server-time extension, all events
     can be accurately replayed, rather than being limited to messages.
