If you look at this in the source, it's obvious that lastlog is a slash
command, so you'll need to leave "lastlog" literal. *

The "backlog" is the text in the conversation window.


* This brings up an interesting issue. Should the command strings be
marked for translation so people in LANG=es can do /unirse instead
of /join? I take it that since this has never come up before, it's
probably best to leave the commands as-is?
