bug#32470: rcirc-debug: ignore read-only; do not move point if mid-buffe

Severity: wishlist

        I find it quite convenient to be able to make the *rcirc debug*
        buffer read-only, so that I won’t be able to change it by
        accident.  This of course requires the rcirc-debug function to
        use inhibit-read-only.

        Another usability tweak is to restore point after insertion –
        unless it was at the end of the (visible portion of the) buffer
        before.  (Hence allowing the buffer to scroll normally after
        end-of-buffer is used.)

        Also, while we’re at, %Y-%m-%d can be replaced with the
        equivalent %F in the format-time-string argument; and concat
        is useless as ‘insert’ effectively concatenates its string
        arguments already.

        I’m somewhat unsure if this change is NEWS-worthy; if so,
        I suggest the following entry.

** rcirc

+++
*** The 'rcirc-debug-buffer' can now be made read-only; it will be
ignored when adding debug text to it.  Also, the point will not be
moved, unless it's set to the end of the visible portion of the buffer.

        Please thus consider the patch MIMEd.

* lisp/net/rcirc.el (rcirc-debug): Ignore rcirc-debug-buffer read-only
status.  Restore point after insertion unless it was at the end.
Replace %Y-%m-%d with the equivalent %F in format-time-string; remove
useless concat.  (Bug#-XXX-)
