Lets users access one IRC server from many locations

'dircproxy' is an IRC proxy server ("bouncer") for people who use IRC from lots of different workstations or clients, but wish to remain connected and see what they missed while they were away. Users connect to IRC through dircproxy, and remain connected to the server, even after a client is detached from it. While they're detached, 'dircproxy' logs channel and private messages as well as important events; when users reattach it downloads those logs to you using ordinary IRC protocol.
