Poor Julia and friends were the objects of much abuse.

Colin needs a lot of rework to make it Cold-friendly; 
I think it would be easier to build a new one base on Joe Strout's 
Python agent.  The main reason why I use Colin is because I'm actually

and I can quickly interface an external bot to the lib and then play 
with it interactively.  It's not necessarily the best, but it works--
