irssi-python (Python 3 scripting support for irssi)

irssi-python embeds Python into an Irssi module, providing most of the
functionality of the Perl wrapper to Python scripts using a similar

After the package is installed, you can test it from within irssi by
running "/load python". If this works OK, you can configure irssi to
always load the module with a command like:

$ echo 'load python' >> ~/.irssi/startup

Example python scripts can be found in /usr/share/irssi/scripts/*.py

Note that previous versions of irssi-python used Python 2. If you've
written any scripts, they may have to be modified for Python 3.

Beware of upgrades: if Slackware's irssi or python packages are ever
upgraded, you'll almost certainly have to rebuild & reinstall this.
Symptoms may include irssi ABI version mismatch errors, undefined
symbols, or segfaults.

If you get a warning about an irssi version mismatch when building
irssi-python, first update your irssi package to the latest one for
your Slackware version:

# slackpkg update
# slackpkg upgrade irssi

If you still get the warning, set the environment variable VERSION.
The first part of VERSION (before the last _) should not change, but
the part after the last _ is the irssi version. Example:

# VERSION="20230512_9ab753d_1.4.5" sh irssi-python.SlackBuild

You'll also have to have the irssi .tar.xz source tarball in the
SlackBuild directory. It should be available from:
