So what's the problem? You make it sound like he *must* be plagerizing 
someone else's work, but PyAIML is for creating just such an interface. 
There are even free brains available. Considering the term "AI engine" 
has no official meaning, a shell powered by an AIML interpreter could 
easily be one of many possible solutions to such a setup.
