While I agree, in principle (the closest thing to a real live production
system I run personally is an IRC server on NetBSD/pmax), have you ever
*looked* at the IRC server code? It *defines* "tissue of hacks". If there's
something better out there, or at least something different that fits his
needs, I'd recommend staying away from IRC.
