As Darlene noted, my second link describes my use of the Django ORM on
its own in a forking server.  Yardbird itself is an IRC bot that you
write using Django models, templates and views, and the Django
"urlconfs" regex dispatcher works well for matching incoming IRC
messages to the view functions.

At some point I'll add jabber support, since I'm keen to ditch IRC.
Aside from bitlbee, all the jabber<->IRC gateways go the wrong way: they
let you use terrible jabber clients to speak the terrible IRC protocol
to terrible IRC servers.  I want my nice IRC client to connect to my
nice Jabber server over the nice XMPP!
