supposing I had:
 - a chat server called "recipes.com"
 - a chat-bot called "mod_recipes" that provided recipe information on "
my aim is to provide said service directly via "recipes.com".  So to get
going, I had a look at the function int() in mod_echo.erl* that would
provide a basic echo service on "echo. at HOST@" and the crucial part seems to
be these two lines:

    MyHost = gen_mod:get_opt_host(Host, Opts, "echo. at HOST@"),

I kind of hoped that by simply changing MyHost thus:

    MyHost = gen_mod:get_opt_host(Host, Opts, "@HOST@"),

i would turn my entire server into an echo service; although this appears to
not be the case.  I imagine that I need to issue some kind of command to the
router that all incoming messages, iq and presence stanzas should be routed
to my module, but for the life of me I can't figure out how. It had occurred
to me that I may have to *disable* some other modules before attempting
this; or even change the order in which they are loaded somehow.

If anyone has any knowledge of setting up chat bots in this way, I would be
extremely grateful for a pointer; I have a feeling it's only a small point I
am missing, but it has got me rather stuck
