if you look around for a decent chat-bot, you'll always come across the AIML ones, Verbots or UH (which we can ignore as a non-free standalone).
AIML is already implemented (incl. Pandora) & there are some nice bots available in general, but using, editing or creating AIML in Notepad or even with available Editors is usually time-consuming 'n more or less a pain in the ass due to it's own structures & restrictions. You might get a nice bot out of it though.
Still left are the Verbots (verbally-enhanced software robots) which have been kind of an alternative to Aiml-Bots over the last decade.I prefered to use verbots, since its library system is way more structured, synonym usage is advanced and all in all it's pretty easy to use & understand.
In comparison to aiml, you get a more complex and life-like bot in less time.
& they got a SDK for Verbots on SourceForge!
So how about implementing this feature? Or writing a plug-in?
I think it would be a great expansion. It would be like combining the biggest bot-communities, making it THE THING for all recent and upcoming guys interested in bots and assistants
