Anonymizer and analyzer for IRC logs


This is a long shot in the dark, blindfolded and walking backwards, but
here goes:

I need to anonymize and analyze a lot of IRC logs as part of my thesis
research. I found some (non-Ruby) tools that makes pretty statistics of
logs, but that isn’t too useful.
As for anonymizing, I haven’t found anything yet, and this is the most
pressing need.

I figure it won’t be too hard to hack something together in Ruby, but on
the off chance someone else has done some brainwork on the issue
already, I’ll try that “work smarter, not harder” thing I hear so much
about. I’ve looked inside rica and rice so far, but they appear to be
more geared towards parsing what comes raw from the IRC server.
