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.
"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.
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
