I couldn't come online for quite awhile....

No, you didnt miss anything, I missed to explain new thoughts I came  
up with:

If the irc server is already connected with the django site, why not  
offer users the possibility of chatting via js-powered chat like in  
facebook. But therefor the irc server must be informed somehow.
