More like
;;;###autoload (unless (fboundb 'irc) (defalias 'irc 'rcirc))

However, it does not make sense to conditionalize the autoload, since
it concerns the state of a virgin Emacs.  So either we decide that a
virgin Emacs maps irc to rcirc, in which case we should write just
;;;###autoload (defalias 'irc 'rcirc)
or we decide that it doesn't, in which case we would not want to have
the alias at all.

Richard mentioned that maybe ERC would be installed as well.  Then we
should definitely decide which client, if any, should be available as
