IRC output plugin rate-limiting


Hi developers,

Right now the IRC output plugin is limited to 0.5 messages per second by the looks of reading the source code for the irc bot used.

For our private IRC server this is not enough and #logstash often is hours, or even days, behind with it's output.

The bot have options for setting message queues both for the client and for what the server allows. It would be nice to be able to set these options as plugin options in logstash.

Cheers, Nafallo
