It is completely and utterly impossible to "enforce" showing
anything. The client decides what to display.

Also, where is the difference between a message which has a stub of
":irc.openprojects.net 372", and a message which has a stub of
":FUNDRAISING!foo@irc.openprojects.net NOTICE"? The client decides
how to display both messages; the protocol does not even pretend to
tell the client what to do with them. If your client displays one in a
silly or inconvinient manner, get a better client. Mine puts messages
exactly where I tell it to.
