In short, ircio does less. It doesn't have any real parsing of the IRC
protocol aside from PING, and it's not designed for use as an IRC
client. It's equivalent to netcatting into the server, except you
don't have to worry about pings. Aside from that you're basically
dealing with raw IRC commands, and that's why there's a large
difference in SLOC. Bad for humans, great for bots.
