I'm working on it, since I'm responsible for the (lack of) features in it.
:) Sorry, but I've lost a week's worth of stuff due to hard drive crash +
I had to move across Canada, so I haven't been up to date .. however I
think I'll post an update next weekend including mob editor

I left this out on purpose, since I felt it depended on the style of the 
mud / whether gods could be trusted not to stomp on each person's toes; 
plus I wanted a minimalist patch. Anyways, on my mud, this is done by 
adding a "zone" entry to the player file somewhere. Only level 34's can 
do a "set zone" on other gods. So if I do a "set levork zone 13" then 
Levork can only edit zone 13, unless he's level 34 in which case he can 
run rampant (since I like to correct fellow builder's spelling mistakes 
:P )

Not started yet.
