Better workflow would be to auto-detect ACTION to raise an issue, and detect referenced issues when processing the IRC and add comments to the issue. This could also implement the "Closes #1" type behavior when issues are RESOLVED in IRC.

Note that on GitHub you can assign an issue to someone. This is their equivalent of an action and if you pause to think about it it actually makes sense: if someone needs to do something it's that there's a problem of some sort to fix :) You can also mention someone in an issue, and that will show up in the UI.
