If you use a script to modify incoming IRC messages, a client connecting to the relay plugin will see those messages post-modification.

For example, I'm in a channel that uses FiSH encryption and I use a script to decrypt that text.  If I were to connect to the relay plugin from another client, that client would see the messages already decrypted.  I feel that in this case it defeats the purpose of the encryption since the decrypted text now gets sent over a public network.

Perhaps there should be an option that lets the user decide whether text sent over the relay should be pre- or post-modification.
