No.

This is Dalnet's ircd.  With an average of > 65000 users, encryption to
the CLIENT is not feasible.

Adding support probably wouldn't be too tricky to someone with C
expierence.

Newer versions of bahamut will do encrypted links.  Just rc4.

Scalability while compressing to clients is a severly limiting factor
unless you only plan on using it locally.

We use IRC for internal communication, and for communication with
techies of several other Dutch ISPs. Works like a charm, 
and the irc
server is local to us. If it's down, you pick another 
irc-server on
the same network.

Works for us, works for lot of people.
