Ok, so this reply is 2 years after the last one, but incase anyone is even interested, I'm currently writing and maintaining my own services package which natively supports (any by no other means) MySQL databases. Reading from it, writing to it on the fly, so you could effectively have a web interface of sort to read the IRC database and have it live, if you like.
I have a version 2.1 of my system which is stable, and supports Ultimate2.8.x (running fine on 2.8.9 as of writing), but I'm working on a version 3 of the system at present which will be written to support Ultimate 3.x (developing and testing on 3.0.1). I'll also be making it modular in time, so that 2.8.x will also be supported.
If this is of any interest of course.
