==== Description: ====
lurker is yet another IRC bot.  Aside from sentimental value, the development
aims to create one of the few non-intrusive yet still useful IRC automata.  To
accomplish this, lurker is near-silent unless directly addressed by initial
'!' characters in lines; additionally, all queries also function in private
queries, removing the need for channel clutter.  lurker uses simple databases
to enable deep web scraping.  In the future, lurker will grow semi-automatic
channel management capability, and may also evolve into a NickServ
implementation as well.

lurker was originally written in python, partially as an experiment to learn
python, and it shows.  His code is inefficient, sloppy, and in need of a
rewrite.  Writing in python made sense at the time, but the current codebase
is too slow to scale well.  To that end, a complete rewrite in Common Lisp is
planned, which will have the advantage of (hopefully) adding in SSL support.

==== Other Software Required: ====
lurker is currently dependent on:
* python:, Python Software Foundation License
* python irc library:, GPL

In the future, lurker will be dependent on neither of those things, and
* clisp:, GPL
* CL+SSL:, MIT-style ( )
* CL-IRC:, MIT-style (see link on same page)
