[SLED] Artificial Intelligence and scripted agents

In RL, we use paramedics as "patients" who have looked over the mock
scenario and have the knowledge to guide their answers in response to
the assessment and treatments they receive.  This enables the "patient"
to be autonomous and exist within the realm of the scenario.

No reason this couldn't be done with use of voice.  In lieu of that, I
participated in an ER patient simulation at AMMC and had a  doctor
looking over my shoulder in my RL office prompting me with symptoms
while the SL doc (RL doctor in SL) tried to diagnose and treat. We did
it in text chat.

	It's "doable" in the absolute sense.  I can't imagine it's
practical with just LSL.  Do you already have a system that can field
natural language questions with reasonable replies?  If you do, the
easiest thing might be to have you script bridge SL to that existing
