Could River Return for Capaldi Era?

In the latest issue of DWM, Steven Moffat has stated he is uncertain on whether he'll bring back River Song for Peter Capaldi's era.

“It’s always down to whether there’s a good story. My immediate instinct was that story’s probably done. Not that we saw all of it, but I never thought we should see all of it. I’m slightly tempted, because I imagine Peter Capaldi and Alex Kingston would be absolutely hilarious together…”
"She could certainly have met other Doctors. So there’s nothing stopping us… But is there anything new we can do? Or is the new thing that Peter Capaldi and Alex Kingston would be very sexy together? Is that enough? We’ve always had fun with the fact that they don’t look like a couple.”
“Peter Capaldi and Alex Kingston would look like a couple – that’s the thing. Whereas I thought Matt and Alex were gorgeous together, but it looked slightly strange, because he was so much younger. Alex is just great fun to have on the show. It’s when you want to throw the Doctor a bit, because what River does so well is to make him a bit on the back foot and a bit flustered.”
This could also depend on when Moffat chooses to leave and whether or not he will be completely leaving Doctor Who, or just stepping down as the show-runner.

I would like her to come back but it has to be a good story and if it doesant work with Peter, then dont continue, but give her a shot first

I vote yes. But no reason she could not have regenerated at the Library. Rule #1 the Doctor lies so why not his wife.

Soul or a copy of everything she was up to that moment? Remember Jenny did not regenerate right away, they all thought she was dead. And as for the regenerations... the Doctor lies and why wouldn't River?

NO, NO! It's obvious that Moffat is in love with Riversong, but the rest of us are not, enough! No more Riversong!

Why doesn't he bring back other companions, why is it always Rivrersong?

In case you had't noticed, I'm really tired of Riversong, and I bet other fans feel just like I do.
