It might be a good idea if editor are going to start using diagnal 
directions, and imp's won't have access to the source, that either one of 
two things are done...

1.  We all agree on the D# that correspond to directions (i.e. D6 is 
always northeast for everybody)

2.  The coders of thes editors happily make the #'s for diagnal 
directions definable, to tailor suit each mud.

(Not demands or critism, just friendly advise that could make things 
easier, although I must admit I find #2 the most likely of happening)
