While I don't really have a strong opinion, as my config just points to
irc.debian.org for the debian channels, I think there are some points
against a move:
- network stability: oftc annoys with many netsplits lately. This might
be temporary, but in the last month it was extreme.
- nickserv/chanserv services differ. I'm receiving the expression
freenodes are more sophisticated, but that might just be usage.
