Title:Ability to modify custom variables from private message
Full Description:What i'd like to be able to do is:

Create a custom variable in ircbot.text, i.e. %showtitle=[initial text value]
then be able to have users modify the value with some command.

like: !mod %showtitle A new text string to display

[!mod %showtitle reset] could reset the variable back to the initial value.

Then we could use this text variable in some channel messages.

OK, backstory for those that care.

We just upgraded our radio station to SHOUTcast DNAS 2.0. using autoDJ from CentovaCast. The problem is V1 would allow us to add the current DJ name into the AIM box on our encoder and pas it along in it's metadata. Then shoutIRC would just grab it there for the current DJ. They removed that capability from V2. Trust me, I've looked for a work around and nothing exists. Now in shoutIRC it never changes.

The stream title or DJ Name no longer changes when new DJ's connect, it's the master station title. I want to have something like "Maniac Monday's with DJ^Freddy is playing Beck - Hotwax" display on song changes.

So if we could do this, then when a dj got on air, he could /msg the bot and change the show title. Then reset it when he was done. Also, if he/she forgot to do it, then any existing user can reset it back.
