Commands
/NICKLOCK <Nick> <NewNick>

Changes user's nick to the new nick, and forces it to remain as such for the remainder of the session.

/NICKUNLOCK <Nick>

Removes a hold on <Nick>

Special Notes
If you attempt to change the nickname of a user who is already locked, for example using /SANICK or you manage to somehow issue a second /NICKLOCK (which should not actually be possible, unless something is very messed up!), there will be a nickname collision as the module will deny its own nickchange. The nickname collision is there to prevent loops and desyncs. Be both careful and conservative with your use of this command!
