Thanks for the pointer, that looks much better.

Seeing that docstring got me thinking, should I use `:symbol' or just
`symbol' for the symbols in `rcirc-connections'?

(setq rcirc-connections '(("irc.freenode.net"
                           :channels ("#emacs" "#rcirc") 
                           :nick "rcy")))


(setq rcirc-connections '(("irc.freenode.net"
                           channels ("#emacs" "#rcirc") 
                           nick "rcy")))
