Intelligent WTF is an acronym decoder: it uses a central database to
store internet/hacker slang (now commonly used in email and text
messaging: e.g., "lol").  NetBSD includes a game called WTF that decodes
acronyms on the command line; Intelligent WTF improves on this by adding
an interactive mode (batch mode not yet implemented), acronym and
synonym learning, editing the acronyms file, and a built-in Scheme
interpreter for extensions and customizations.
