+1 -- but at using the bot and adjusting and enhancing the stuff that
the bot output slightly might be worth the work and would be the good
compromise afaic -- especially in cases/areas where the bot simply can't

target audience here. And those adjustments should be just a few minutes
work that I guess is definitely worth it sometimes.
