 +======Synopsis:​======
 +[[load]] newnick \\
 +[[set]] auto_new_nick ON|OFF|TOGGLE \\
 +[[set]] auto_new_nick_char <​character>​ \\
 +[[set]] auto_new_nick_list <​string>​ \\
 +[[set]] auto_new_nick_length <​number>​ \\
 +
 +======Description:​======
 +This script implements the nickname fudging facility that previously was
 +built in to the client.
 +
 +Whenever the client requires of you a new nickname, if set auto_new_nick
 +is OFF, then you will be prompted for a new nickname. ​ If it is ON, then
 +the next nickname in set auto_new_nick_list will be selected. ​ If that list
 +is empty or all of the nicknames have been exhausted, then the nickname is
 +mangled by adding the single character of set auto_new_nick_char. ​ Once
 +that nickname reaches set auto_new_nick_length characters, it is rotated,
 +by moving the final character in the nick to the start.
 +
 +Eventually, the script will find a nickname that isn't in use, without
 +requiring any manual intervention.
 +
 +======History:​======
 +The auto-new-nick feature first appeared in epic2pre3.
 +This script was written by blackjac and first appeared in epic5-0.0.6.
