I may be missing something, but if you keep all your data in the DB,  
there's no need to notify the irc server of changes to the DB.

The only time you'll need this user information (it seems) is while  
responding to /join and /list requests. Just read the DB at that time.

What's nice about this is the DB takes care of most if not all of your  
synchronization requirements, so you have far fewer concurrency issues  
to think about than if you were broadcasting changes from the web app  
to the irc server.
