Well, I agree 100% that the current way of splitting EXP in the circle 
dist. archive isn't very good. But on the other hand it might make life 
easier for some newbies *shrug*. So I'm not going into a big discussion 
here, it seems to be made the easiest way as it is now..

Yep, right... I made something similar to this... As the mud I imp. allso 
has multiclassed chars. they'll get some extra modifications in the XP 
calculations and stuff... I think the mentioned way makes the splitting 
of XP more even... I mean just because HANIBAL the 30th level warrior 
kicks a 1mil XP mob with GIZMO (the 5th level mage), Gizmo shoudln't get 
500k and level 5 times just for that *grin*.

What i did was to make a few checks in the fight.c and limits.c files, 
and to the group command (act.informative.c I think), to show the split 
'percentage' of the XP to the group...
