Just a bit of self-promotion. Bitlbee in Fedora has socket activation 
(formerly inetd-style activation) working. So (in case you had bitlbee 
running as daemon):

systemctl stop bitlbee.service
systemctl disable bitlbee.service

and then you can activate socket service

systemctl enable bitlbee.socket
systemctl start bitlbee.socket

You can now try

pgrep -f -l bitlbee

to see that (despite confusing name of the second systemctl command) 
bitlbee is in fact not started yet.

Yet, when you run your IRC client against localhost:6667 you get 
connection and bitlbee running.
