There is a project called "Punjab" that you might want to look at:

What punjab does is it bridges twisted.web and
twisted.words.protocols.jabber (XMPP)
and generally uses "twisted.words" a lot.  Unless you have a strict
requirement on doing
something IRC related, you might find that XMPP does a lot of 'IRC
type' things really well,
and there is a lot of momentum behing XMPP tools right now.

I imagine that this might be a good jumping off point for the work
that you are trying to do.
