You misunderstand me.

I wasn't referring to the AdvancedClient class in sandbox/exarkun/irc2.py,
as you seem to be thinking.  I was offering a suggestion on how to structure
*your* code that extends twisted.protocols.irc.IRCClient, if you choose to
extend it.

(The fact that AdvancedClient is an extension to IRCClient that subclasses
it as I describe above suggests that my advice is sound, but the existence
of AdvancedClient is incidental to the point I was trying to make.)
