A "thin client IRC out of the box"?  XMPP and IRC are supported (and 
therefore, Google Talk and Facebook Chat since they are XMPP).  I'm not 
sure of what your question is then.  I guess I'm not understanding what 
you mean by "thin client" or why you would rather use ChatZilla instead 
of the built-in IRC. (And how it makes the profile "dirtyish".)
