I'll throw in my two cents which is that at some point I hacked out a quick
implementation of the protocol using asynchat, and probably could do so
again, but would rather just say use it :-)  It's really a great way to
do this, since IRC has no pipelining, there's really not a concern there,
and async sockets are REALLY low overhead---at least on any real OS :-)
