Am I missing your point ?

You can use tn3270 to any mud - circle doesn't use any terminal 
codes except for the color codes and those are the same for tn
and telnet ... so which codes are you talking about ?
I just tried tn3270 to my a mud and it works.

Circle provides only text to its users regardless of the client.
