No, this is a different discussion. Back then we were discussing a tool
that could be easily (or maybe not that easily but with some learning)
adapted by anybody. 

Requesting the use of real-time communication is different as it isn't
possible to join there for everyone even if they are willing because
they might simply need some sleep.

If you remember the DVCS discussion, there were some technical problems
but some people stood up to solve them (thanks Owen) and a survey was
held that clearly showed that most people actually affected agreed.

And overall, we are not discussing if IRC is bad or good or if mailing
lists are good or bad but we are searching for a solution everybody can
participate that is acceptable by those people doing most of the work.
