Could you describe a bit more what this is about (I'm not a regular IRC
user)?  I can't remember seeing those C-c escape sequences, when do they

would it be even better to turn them into faces?
C-c are escape code for colors. I think they came with mIRC first, but

For what it's worth, EmacsWiki has rcirc-controls.el: http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/rcirc-controls.el ...it has a few issues if I remember correctly, mainly poor performance. The processing will be very noticeable when dealing with messages with many control codes.
