#184 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Why not to add "irc to irc" gateway feature? I see this feature usable by mobile phone clients (for example, virca), that can connect to single network server at once. So, we connect to bitlbee and have set of irc networks, ten jabber accounts and couple of ICQ uins in same window. Is not it really crazy? :) Or do you find the feature really useless?

you can use a bouncer to connect to BitlBee and other IRC-servers

Thank you for the advice.

I would like to see this, actually. Why add in another bouncer when bitlbee is more than capable of acting as a bouncer with relatively little code. Is not IRC functionality already part of libpurple?

It will be pretty good to "detach" bitlbee

That'll never be possible, just put a proxy in between. I don't want BitlBee to keep sitting on IM connections when the user disconnects. Not a good use of resources on public servers, and I think most people are happy that BitlBee keeps its "hands" off their IM accounts when they're not connected.
