I have to disagree about irc.

I would love to be able to ask you (Ralf) a quick question in irc about 
the SL GNS merge right now.

If you were idle in the hot irc channel I'd be able to ask you a 
question that you could answer at your convenience.

The vast majority of the time the irc channel is no traffic, for days at 
a time no one says anything, but the ability to ask a question and 
usually get a quick response is great.

The way irc is used here and in osm in general is really the ideal way 
for me: Idle/quite most of the time, good, easy quick way to ask a 
question, ability to have a detailed back and forth if needed on a topic.
