We use client certs for everything including IRC at work - which is easy for people once they're set up. In client space that means that Chatzilla will work out of the box (using whatever cert you have on Moz's keychain). Other clients probably won't do ssl or maybe will do ssl but not present a cert to the server. In that case use stunnel locally to proxy the connection and then connect to localhost with your client.
