No, I really don't.

IRC is fine for discussing ideas about how to solve things.

But no, it's not a replacement for actual code review after the fact.

If you think email has too long latency for review, and can't use
public mailing lists and cc the people who are maintainers, then I
simply don't want your patches.

You need to fix your development model. This whole "I need to get
feedback from whoever still uses irc and is active RIGHT NOW" is not a
valid model. It's fine for brainstorming for possible approaches, and
getting ideas, sure.
