Well, abbreviation of commands is implemented.  The "w" won't work
because that's the abbreviation for west, not for wear.  As for obj
names, maybe something like:

  int new_is_name(char *str, char *keywords) {
    register char *curname, *curstr;

    curstr = any_one_arg(keywords, curname);

      if (is_abbrev(str, curname))
    while (*curstr);

Maybe.  Written in the mailer, of course (always).
