IRC client tunnel send quit at shutdown

Description

If the IRC client proxy automatically sends a /quit at shutdown, then you can come back with the same nick. I2P IRC servers generally have a very long idle time, so you are often still "connected" as far as the server knows, after you restart your router.

It seems like the streaming connections should already be closed or reset at shutdown, shouldn't that be sufficient? Is it not happening or is it just not getting to the server? Are there any improvements to make on the IRC server tunnel side?

Applies to SOCKS IRC also.

I looked at this and it looks pretty difficult. Where we find out about shutdown is too far away from where the I2PSocket output stream is. If it's really hard or disruptive we shouldn't do it.
