What I did was set up a Socks5 proxy and have the mIRC users use that. When 
identd requests are made, the user returned is whatever user the Socks5 
proxy is running as. (this means you have to make sure that the Socks5 
daemon isn't running as root, or else a lot of IRC servers or channels will 
kick them.)
