Thanks! You're subtly defusing the future frustration 
of generations of cluebees.

When it replies, it will say it's at metronomicon.com,
but i find infobot.org shorter to type.  I think i've
fixed the BOUNCE problem some folks were getting.

Ok, to substance :)

Karma will be a module.  Modules can act like filters (changing
the content of the message, like processing the ++ and --)
and also return certain language when queried (as defined by
some regex).  So the ++/-- handling becomes a module executed
early on the input stream that affects the karma relation,
then there's some later processing that sees if you're asking
about karma.
