So why not embed a IRC client on www.blender.org, or provide a link to a
web based IRC client like Mibbit (or whatever freenode will accept) with
the channel already set up. People go to blender.org looking for
support, just lead them to where the live support actually is without
making them install any software. Be sure to post etiquette rules next
to the link in big flashing letters ;)
