The irc egg has been slightly improved: debug output is more useful,
and various filters can be set. Also, automatic handling of PING
messages is provided. Thanks to Vesa Kaihlavirta for his help.

Also: the darcs repository now has preliminary support for using
libffi (
to overcome the 126-argument limit: C_apply uses this facility
to portably construct function calls with more than 126 arguments
(currently with an arbitrary limit of 1000). To use it, install
libffi and configure chicken with

$ ./configure --enable-libffi

I have only tested this minimally, and some performance
tweaking could be made. Anybody interested in giving it a try
can pull the current version from the darcs repository.
