[Twisted-Python] offer of adding IRCD support to words.protocol.irc

On close inspection, the code that your command runs (from
twisted.words.service) happens to be the IRCD code that I thought was
missing from twisted, and is adequate for my purposes. Everything else
I need to write now is wildly divergent from the goal of "running an
irc server".

So, uh, my bad, I just didn't read the manual.
