~emersion/soju#223: 
Make upstreamMessageBurst configurable

I didn't get a response in IRC, so I'll ask here. I need to increase upstreamMessageBurst on my system. Is adding this to the config file a goal?

Why do you need to increase this value?

I'd prefer to not make it configurable. I'd prefer to work on a proper solution at the IRC protocol level instead.

Right, but your server doesn't actually rate-limit and disconnect you?

What server are you connecting to which accepts messages at a higher rate? Asking so that we can potentially get in touch with their devs to fix this.

I think any rate-limiting should be strictly opt-in on the part of the server

That's unfortunately not going to work: many IRC servers with strict limits are deployed today, it's very unlikely that they'll get patched to support any new extension, and risking disconnection is too punitive to try.

I hope the default can at least be increased.

Unlikely, many widely used servers have a very conservative limit.
