I don't think so. CIA is really for commit notifications.
As they're also collecting and aggregating commit statistics on the
website, I doubt that you can just send "anything" to it.

OTOH writing a custom IRC bot isn't that difficult, there are a few
frameworks out there.

SUSEhelp (used on #suse, #opensuse-de, ...) is Choob:
And there are lots of frameworks in lots of different programming languages.

Jabber could be an option as well, but we don't have a Jabber server
(yet ?) although it's not necessarily needed.
It's pretty easy to write Jabber bots or apps that send Jabber messages

But there are other APIs as well, in Python, Perl, ...
I've used Smack to write a SVN commit notification bot for Jabber MUCs
(group chats), damn easy with Smack.
