irc://<connect-to>/<target>

Right now, ChatZilla checks the list of networks against <connect-to>.  If
<connect-to> is a known network, then ChatZilla connects to that network,
otherwise it connects to <connect-to> as if it were a server name.

That's not so good.  Link authors won't know ahead of time what networks
chatzilla knows (well, once the network information actually makes it into
prefs.)  if a link specifies a network chatzilla doesn't know, it'll fail
connecting to the name as a server.  This would be a little confusing to the user.

I'm going to change parseIRCURL() so that it considers anything without a . or :
character as a network.  you'll be able to force any real server name that
doesn't already contain . or : by using the ",isserver" modifier.
