Sure. New patch does this.

That would be nice, but no. This chunk of code was affected by
subword-mode in two ways:

1. (forward-word 1)
2. (bounds-of-thing-at-point 'word)

The proposed change only takes care of #1, and I don't see an obvious
way to make it take care of both. I can do (while (erc-forward-word)
...), but then to get the word, I'd need to backtrack to the previous
word marker, and it's not obvious to me that this would be an
improvement over the existing change in the patch.

The attached patch thus has no changes to this hunk. Let me know if you
think of a nicer way to do this.

Subject: [PATCH] ERC no longer gets confused by subword-mode

In commit 6ddc44225e743e2b2a0d5c192f50aefd7a4a915b subword-mode was
integrated into the syntax table instead of simply remapping the
interactive motion bindings as was done previously.  This had the
unintended effect of changing the behavior of lisp programs that touch
words.  In the case of ERC, it completely broke it: emacs now throws an
error when ERC is launched, making it unusable when subword-mode is
active.

This commit replaces the word-oriented calls with ones that navigate
the buffer using syntax classes

Closes: #17558
