No, thank you. IRC is the biggest drain on productivity since USENET.

I should be able to find a dialog in the source code without having anyone hold my hand. As it is, the XUL files I went through seem to be almost entirely devoid of comments.

Those of us who have no intention of wasting our days and nights in inane chat rooms with programmers are second-class citizens in the IRC-based open source world, unfortunately. It's time for the open source community to lose the attitude that "I don't have to comment it -- I'm available on IRC if you gotta question."
