I'd be very much in favor of something which lowers the barrier to
participation here. IRC isn't hard once you're used to it, but
NickServ, ChanServ, Zodbot, etc., add a layer of confusion and
complication. It's not just newbies and non-geeks that we're shutting
out. Only a small percentage of tech people - sysadmins, developers,
etc. - have a working familiarity with IRC.

It'd be especially nice to have something which could integrate with
FAS and with the Fedora Hubs.
