Objects in memory

I haven't tracked this down yet, but I was wondering if there would be any
side-affects from modifying object copies in memory. The mud does create a
new object
from the prototype it load right?, not just a pointer to the prototype
object. So I could
in theory modify the e-fields, affects, and such of a singular object held
by one 
player without affecting the rest of the similiar (copied) objects also in
the world.
This is a key point in doing something I plan (long range)

I'm pretty sure this is the way it is with mobs since they are basically
stripped down characters.
