I'm currently using irssi as my irc client, which is ok, mostly, but there are a couple of things that would make the chat experience better:

  1. readline support -- the ability to use vi key bindings in chat like I do everywhere else would be good.
  2. Tab completion on nicks that doesn't add a space after the nick, so that I can add punctuation without hitting the backspace key.

I tried googling for IRC readline, but the results were disappointing. Does anyone know of a commandline irc client which has readline support, or know of a way to configure irssi to use it?
