IdeaIRC plugin

Hello,

I was making an IRC plugin for IDEA but now I don't have time even to finish the configuration UI. At the same time I feel that this project may be interesting to someone, so I decided to share what was already done: http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/IdeaIRC
Feel free to contact me if you wish to take over.

Technical details: uses PircBot as an IRC engine, PicoContainer as an IOC container. Has UI abstraction layer which allows to have both IDEA and standalone Swing versions without a lot of overhead.

Highest priority tasks: finish configuration UI, fix autoscrolling bug. After this it will be generally usable.

Cool. It would be cool to integrate with the upcoming IDETalk support in IDEA6
with code pointers and things like that.

AFAIK IDETalk will use Jabber protocol wich is superior to IRC. BTW plans to use Jabber instead of IRC for our business needs in the near future is one of the reason why I'm not too interested in this plugin now.
