Delay command execution in X-Chat

Use the following command to delay execution of a command in X-Chat:

/timer seconds command without slash

It is useful when you need to get opped by the chanserv but X-Chat executes the command before it has authenticated itself with nickserv:

/timer 10 cs op #example username

I’m not sure if this is X-Chat specific, an IRC Client standard, or an IRC server command, but hey it works for X-Chat.
