  Description     : A fully featured easy to use IRC-bouncer

 miau is a fully featured easy to use IRC-bouncer that can
 keep your nick even when you disconnect. Additionally, miau
 can set you away automatically when you disconnect and
 auto-op (or auto-voice) people.

 While you're disconnected, miau can also log everything
 and/or pipe private messages to an external program. And
 when you connect miau again, miau can replay some of the
 old messages so that you know what's going on.

Just curious if miau is better in one way or the other than existing,
actively developed IRC proxies? (such as znc)

Apart from maybe its size.

From the feature list above, znc supports all that and possibly a lot
more, and has an active upstream. Miau had a release in 2007, and
another in 2010 - and even that has been a year ago (no commits in its
SVN since then, either).
