I sometimes received private messages from people on irc.wikimedia.org but I think this should be forbidden for consistency with channels which are read only.

I don't see a clear need for that. Besides, private messages proved to be helpful to me a few times.

We have an 'IRC' component now. Also added shell keyword.

I suspect this shouldn't be considered to block bug 16599 since this is to do with Wikimedia's irc server, nothing to do with development of the recentchanges/rc code. Will leave it to someone else to do something with that or not.

We've got a couple requests here not to block PMs, and I don't see a compelling reason to block them, so going to give this an INVALID for now.
