In the past there were some friction in #drupal when right in the middle of some deep developer discussion a beginner joined and asked something trivial. This usually ended with the poor chap running for his life to #drupal-support .
However, support is for -- support. Not coding. To this end, the (relatively) newly formed #drupal-dev is reserved for those deep developer discussion and chitchat is frowned upon. #drupal is everything related to coding, advocacy and so on.
#drupal-support is delegated to "which links should I click so my site sizzles". But no coding please, have that on #drupal .
