 From a user perspective I actually like 
http://sourceforge.net/projects/supybot/ which is bot framework (like 
Phenny). It doesn't use Twisted, and works with stdlib.

I've not actually needed to implement a plugin/bot though I've just used 
the ones that it shipped with so I can't comment on how nice the API is. 
They do have a tutorial for plugins (a dice roll example I think).
