   About 500 times a day to check lag (a "ping" feature would be 
nice, tho it should go thru the server). I use the CTCP Version to 
see what client other ppl are using fairly often as well, partly out 
of curiousity but mostly because I usually end up having to tell ppl 
how to do various things on IRC and I can't really do that unless I 
know their client. Other than those two, not very often. These would 
be nice features, but don't require true client-client -- there's no 
reason for them not to go through the server. Then again, "CTCP"s on 
IRC go through the server too...
