No, I don't want the module/bot itself to get the URL. I'm
thinking of something sort of like:
user says `show url for infobot' to the bot
the `show url' handler parses out `infobot'
the handler somehow asks itself (the bot) about `infobot' and
it (the handler) gets the response back rather than the reply
going back to the (user/channel/console)
the `show url' handler slurps out URLs from the reply and then
does system("netscape", "-remote", ...) for each
That third step is what I'm not sure of how to do (make the
bot talk to itself internally).
