I have visions of an animated paperclip that can search with all of the power of supersearch and all of the user friendliness of supersearch...hey wait, why not just use supersearch?
A bot which just gives the same info as a search doesn't seem all that useful, and would clutter up the chatterbox. If the intent was that the groups of new monks that are not likely to read faqs or search for answers would have another place to spit them to already written responses ...

...you might be eaten by a grue...
