no worries, we are not in a hurry.

not sure about this.

Maybe we need to be clearer about what our target audience is. I’m
thinking of people who want to use features like @pl, @djinn or @check
locally, without having to go to IRC, and ideally integrated into GHCi.
There is simply no point for them to have irc or social stuff installed.

There might also be people who want to run an instance of lambdabot in
an IRC channel. But how likely is it that they would want to use a
distribution package for that, and not a local clone of the source where
they can make adjustments?
