Also seems like a lot of money for something I seem to remember was done singlehandedly by Steve G***** when he was trying to track DDoS IRC bots ...

What he did was nothing like what this research proposal is for.

I try very hard not to get involved in flames, but because of your patronising tone, and the obvious inference that you think I'm thick, I'm not prepared to let this one go.

I'll post it again.

(from grc.com)

"I even got quite fancy and built a Markov-chain finite-state statistical dialog modeller. It monitored the flow of IRC channel nicknames and automated the process of determining who was talking to whom, and who were the "bosses" who commanded the most power and respect."

Notice that he almost uses your own words.
