Subject: [PATCH] Fixed the reconnect and shutdown code

Bot::BasicBot currently has its own reconnect code from way back, before POE::Component::IRC had the Connector plugin. I removed the old code and loaded the Connector plugin instead, as well as fixing up the shutdown code (currently there's no way to shut down the bot, it will constantly try to reconnect). I added a bot method called "quit" to quit from IRC and shut down gracefully. If you have a policy against naming methods after POE::Component::IRC events (so that those are still accessible via AUTOLOAD), you might want to rename it.
