... it does a bit more than that, but that is the gist of it. For a list of all the filters, run with -h
irssi/insub.pl is a thin perl wrapper around the python script, which is a total hack, but works. I am told irssi supports python embedding natively, but it doesn't seem to in Ubuntu's repository, which is what I use, so whatever. Use it like any other irssi module:
$ cp -av irssi/insub.pl ~/.irssi/scripts/ [irssi] /script load insub
The original version (of both names) can be found in the old/ directory. It mostly works the same, except does not support unicode in any form, and is written in terrible perl.
