 +======Synopsis:​======
 +[[bind]] <key> stop_irc
 +
 +======Description:​======
 +Send a SIGTSTP signal to the client, which will return you to your shell.
 +This was an important feature in the days before GNU Screen, when you could
 +only log into a server once, and you might need to step away from IRC and 
 +do something else for a moment.
 +
 +Nobody uses this feature any more, except by mistake (when they accidentally hit ^Z).
 +I bet nobody has intentionally used this feature in 20 years.
 +
 +If you accidentally invoke this keybinding, type '​fg'​ to resume. ​ If you stay away 
 +for too long, you will get disconnected from all your servers!
