Steps to reproduce:

I was trying to figure out the definition of the preference awayIdleTime.  I didn't know if that time was in seconds or milliseconds.  So I thought /help pref awayIdleTIme would get me a description.  It doesn't.  Instead, I get a "Extra parameters ignored" warning.

With most NickServ and ChanServ servers, "/help set x" returns help on "x".  So that's what I was basing my assumption on.

Actual results:

"/help pref x" gives a warning message

Expected results:

"/help pref x" should look up help on "x".
