I just started from the simple bot in the python irc package, and
then went to gerritbot when I got a bit stuck. Not wed to using
that, was just the simple way to get started.

However, I'd really like to avoid having one bot uber alles.

We should have different bots for different tasks. Microbots or
what have you.

My bot is primarily for the p!spy and tranclusion features. The log just
happens to fall out as an easy result of the need to persist the data.
A bot that does everything would be much harder to maintain and the
cost of running a bot is tiny.
