A user adds another user to their friend list. When a user lists their
friends they will receive information about all of their friends in digest
form. This will allow at a glance to see which of your friends are online.
The digest information is similar to the current output of the /whois
command. For each user you will see which program they are using and which
channel/game they are in (so long as it's a public channel/game). For
Diablo II the name of the game is not revealed (even if it's public).
The maximum number of friends in the list is 25.
Since we want to provide more features to users who trust each other,
if users add each other to their friends list they will be considered
mutual friends. When enumerating friends, mutual friends will have their
channel/game name revealed even if the user is in a private channel/game
so that they can always find each other. When mutual friends perform certain
