It would be great while there's refactoring going on this area to switch to the XDG config dirs specifications. See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/XdgConfigDirs for more info.

Someone was asking a similar question in chat the other day.
My suggestion was to include a sample .weechat directory in the skeleton (-k argument to useradd) to be copied over to newly created user accounts instead.

This way weechat does not need to be altered. You can include whatever default settings you want. You can even copy or symlink a directory of scripts you want to deliver (and possibly keep updated yourself) with the accounts.
If a user doesn't want this, he can just delete the directory himself.

I second this task/feature :)
My use case is/was: If someone's running their WeeChat on a IRC shell provider for example, the shell provider can define sane defaults for his/her server (set default lag stuff differently, make changes to xfer settings), add the support channel/network to the default networks, etc.

It may also slightly decrease initial starting time of Weechat as it's just doing a simple install or cp (or something similar) as opposed to writing many options that are in the source/binary to a config.

I think having a system-wide configuration file would be nice. It will allow some distribution to point out users who install weechat on their IRC default server without patching the software each time. This will give more flexibility to weechat.

Sorry for the previous blank post ;-)
