 I maintain irssi-svn, but only picked it up some time ago because it needed fix/updating.  So no big deal if y'all decide it should go.  I suppose as the discussion on this has grown cold  I'll assume we're going to keep both?  Seem no real conscience was reached.  

 I'll drop/delete it if needed.
