Bug#183018: Could use the irc alternative
After asking on debian-devel and not receiving that much feedback, I
decided to go ahead and file a wishlist bug against all console IRC
clients, suggesting that they use the irc alternative. Reasoning: they
provide the same functionality, which, according to the Policy, means
the packages _can_ use that alternative.
The only exception is epic, which _should_ use that alternative, since
epic4 and ircII are using it, and they're all quite similar. I'll file
minor bug report against epic.
