#469: Core IRC analyzer needs to provide is_orig field.

Component:  Bro      |    Version:  git/master

 None of the IRC related events indicate which side of the connection sent
 a message which causes problems for writing analysis scripts.

 Here's what I think we should do:

 - The irc_client and irc_server events should be removed.
 - The irc_message event should have an is_orig:bool field added as the
 last argument.
 - All other irc_* events should either be removed and implemented in a Bro
 script or have an is_orig argument added.  Maybe add the is_orig argument
 for now with the thought of removing those events in the future once we
 implement everything in script-land with the irc_message event?
