Network Component

Kiwi has multi-network support meaning you can be connected to many IRC networks at once. You can listen for events or interact on all connected networks by getting the following reference:
var network = kiwi.components.Network()

Or if you know the specific network/connection ID to use:
var network = kiwi.components.Network(connection_id)
