What would the best way to integrate the hosted version of askbot with slack be?

There is a django plugin that does this, but it applies to self-hosted instances. Slack also makes it very easy to subscribe chat channels to RSS feeds, but in our case, our forum is supposed to be private so the feed sits behind authentication.

However, slack is supposed to be very configurable, so even if there was a callback URL that askbot posted to whenever an event happened, I'm pretty confident that we could make it work with slack. Is there a thing like that? Has anyone so far made it work?
