Like javascript: URLs and redirects, I believe that irc: URLs should show as
visited but not actually appear in the history window/sidebar.

I disagree here - I go to a channel from someone's link, then the next day want
to find it again. Where would I look? History. (oh, and the patch seems to have
some pref panel change in it, too)

History should, IMHO, be /where you've been/. With this definition, IRC servers,
channels and queries should show just like any web page.

I agree, but perhaps this could be made a preference, so it'd suit people who
don't want their irc urls to show up in history?

The attached patch doesn't work any more anyway.

If your history is not where you've been, it's no use at all.

If the reporter does not wish to see irc: URLs, they should file a RFE to have
them hidden from the history view, but it must be an option (which I don't
believe will happen, but there you go).
