Nope.. I've looked at the  source file directly, and it's there and has the
docstrings... you can even print them manually:

Python 2.6.8 (unknown, Nov  7 2012, 14:47:45)
[GCC 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-52)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from twisted.words.protocols import irc
>>> print irc.IRCClient.__doc__

    Internet Relay Chat client protocol, with sprinkles.

    In addition to providing an interface for an IRC client protocol,
    this class also contains reasonable implementations of many common
    CTCP methods.


>>>  help(irc.IRCClient)
Help on class IRCClient in module twisted.words.protocols.irc:

IRCClient = <class twisted.words.protocols.irc.IRCClient>

>>> irc.__file__

I think this is a bug in pydoc/help rather than in twisted.
