Yeah of course it is. Tbh fundamentally, Le Bot and Carbon both originate from Dark Mystic (By Mystical). And some of DM's code would've originated from even further back (but I'm not gonna go there). The game changed quite a bit however, and James worked hard to adjust to all of these changes. When James' releases slowed down, Carbon kind of stepped in (using the DM source, and James' code) and D.V. made some new features he thought were needed.
The point I'm trying to get across is that in my opinion, AQW hacking has basically been one huge open-source project. There were the originals, and certain people have kindly taken up time to improve and build on the code over the years. The only thing that has really changed is the name of the project... but everyone has done some code 'stealing' from previous versions of the project (apart from the original author/s) to create their own.
Sorry I don't know if that was ramble, hope it makes sense. Basically, in reality, there's hardly any difference between Le Bot and Carbon based on their foundation, it's just what the individual coder has chosen to do with that foundation.
