Just testing out the new ipython-master and jupyterhub repositories. If you
are trying those, you can easily add a chatbot kernel:

$ pip install chatbot_kernel

Now you can use a console with chatbot_kernel, or select "Chatbot" from the
notebook. Perhaps this type of kernel could actually be made into a
help-bot, or tutor. Or just to have some fun :)

$ ipython console --kernel chatbot_kernel
(loads after a few seconds; loading databases...)
