If all MUDs would run the same code and use the same worlds it wouldn't be
much fun, so I think the idea behind circle is to provide only the basic
things that all MUDs have and let each individual MUD make it's own additions
and changes.

Every new version of circle is easyer to maintain and debug (mostly your own bugs)
and makes it easyer to add new things.
I think this is more important than to add some features in the stock that
everybody is gonna change to his/hers own likings anyway.

I think this is why circle hasn't (realy) got player races and multiple attacks
per round.
