Open irc:// links with xchat

Bug Description

When clicking an IRC link in Chromium, Firefox or Opera, I expect that they are opened in my running xchat instance (I have no other IRC application installed).

Currently, Firefox asks me to configure it manually, Opera tries to use its in-built IRC client and Chromium uses xdg-open, which fails badly:

LC_ALL=C xdg-open irc://
gvfs-open: irc:// error opening location: Der angegebene Ort wird nicht unterstützt (~"the given place is not supported")

Please make at least xdg-open work with xchat.
