I just wanted to move this from DP to the feature tracker before it gets lost.
Mostly, the issue is about getting BYOND to not act as an IRC client, but to better interact with IRC. The idea on the table was to play with world.Export() and make it play nicely with the irc:// protocol, because right now it doesn't recognize it. After that, it's only a matter of writing a library to support all of IRC's functions.
