As a new dev I am searching almost all module that works like mambot. 
Unfortunately, Drupal module page has no classification/category, thus difficult 
for me to pick the right one. Could you help me point to any sample module that 
works like mambot? also, the hook_init() 
http://api.drupal.org/api/4.7/function/hook_init contain too small info for a 
new dev like me.
