Yeah, I noticed, as you've probably seen:
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2011-05/msg01016.html

There was obviously a communication problem. 

I talked on the irc channel #rcirc about a SSL patch 2 months ago, but
apparently without waking a real interest from the maintainers.
The irc channel was obviously the wrong place to talk about this.

Also, I assumed that the place where the development was happening was
the rcy's git(hub) repo, but, again, I was wrong.

So what else can I say? Sorry for the noise. I patched rcirc because
I prefer to run a stable emacs, I like rcirc and I need the SSL
connection *now*.

I prefer to have the colors stripped out, because [IMHO] they are just
lame.

  "rcirc is a next generation IRC client. It blends seamlessly with the
  rest of emacs, it’s tight, fast, and doesn’t light up like a christmas
  tree." -- http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/rcirc

I believe the colors are part of the christmas tree ;-)

Best wishes
