I have had (for some time) a relatively easy way to do this using BeIDE 
for anyone that has a local copy of the CVS tree, but it hadn't been 
updated in quite some time. I just updated it, so now you have no 
excuse. :D  --  http://darkwyrm.beemulated.net/downloads/

On the integration front, there are issues that Stephen and I need to 
work out related to the font engines used, and I'm sorry Stephen that I 
haven't mentioned this to you until now -- I just sat down with the 
code and got it to build properly on my side early yesterday morning. 
Most of that entails just simply he and I figuring out what the other 
did and how to make them play nice-nice together. Once that's figured 
out, integration shouldn't be *too* difficult.
