Captcha Akismet combination

Wouldn't it be nice to have a captcha/akismet combination plugin?

I'd like my users to be able to post comments without a captcha. But, when Askimet flags the message as spam, I'd like my users to still be able to post their comment by filling in a captcha.

Would this be possible by using the plugin functionality?

I'd really like to have an B2Evo expert to answer on this so that I can take a look into making such a plugin, if possible.

There's an Akismet plugin already. This currently only returns karma for the spaminess.
Instead it could be an option to trigger a Captcha plugin instead (there's already a Captcha Image plugin and I've started pulling the meat out there and provide a captcha_base class instead, so that you could easily create new captcha plugins).

Take a look at the Akismet plugin - http://manual.b2evolution.net/Plugins/akismet_plugin. If you want to contribute to it, send me your SourceForge.net account (or some patches).. :)

I knew those two existed and I was looking into it to combine the two. As soon as I have some time I'll dig into it.
