When connecting to an IRC server fails, the information returned at the moment is rather limited. For instance when the connection is refused:

Or when the SSL cert is rejected:

Imho it would be useful if at least the IP to which WeeChat attempted to connect was shown, so it would make it easier for me to debug if the connection failure was something on my end, or on the end of the IRC server (in which case I could contact the network's administrators for further support).
Especially when connecting to DNS based round robins this would be useful, as currently it is impossible to know to which of the servers WeeChat is connecting unless the connection is successul.
