I was thinking about doing something like that.  Are you working with a 
max number of total levels?  What I mean is, given 30 levels, they can do 
25 warrior and 5 cleric, etc.  What kind of character they end up with 
depends on how they've distributed the gains.  I think there should 
always be a tradeoff when multyting, though my mud will probably end up 
in the standard max-out 4 levels.
