+1

XChat is unmaintained so I'm pretty uncomfortable with keeping it
around as an app we're "supporting" by continuing to ship it by
default.

Pidgin is fine for very IRC basic usage and the interface is familiar
to anyone using pidgin group chats for other IM services. It seems to
me that anyone wanting anything more advanced will have (or develop)
an IRC client preference anyway.
