I didn't know Ryan kept a separate repository for it.  That could be
a problem if the two aren't kept in sync.  Of course, the other problem
is that I haven't heard from Ryan in a long while.

I can relate to that.  Could you send a new patch relative to Emacs
trunk's version of rcirc.el?

Thanks for your contribution, in any case,
