Subject: RE: [chairs] OASIS IRC

You cannot do DCC stuff, and it is important to note that many HTTP
proxies are configured to disallow onward connections to non-standard
web ports, and many proxies also do not permit persistent connections,
which is required to proxy IRC.

Really? I use GAIM with a proxy and a port other than 80 behind
a rather restrictive firewall and I never felt like I was missing
much on IRC capabilities when connected to the W3C IRC server...
I wonder now if it was a case of simply not knowing what I was missing
