Comment (by xnyhps):

 I'm not sure this patch is the right approach anymore. The message is
 indeed encrypted as `\001ACTION ${MESSAGE}\001`, but it might be better to
 encrypt it as `/me ${MESSAGE}` instead. There's a number of possible
 scenarios where one side of the conversation sees something as IRC, but
 the other doesn't (XMPP transports, bitlbee, etc.) leading to
 compatibility problems. And by handling IRC differently, it might give
 some information about what client you are using. I'll update the patch to
 use this approach in the next couple of days.
