Whoa there, you're going on about two totally different things as if they
are the same.  Skills based muds mean there are no classes, meaning
everyone can learn anything assuming they have the resources to learn a
specific skill, for example, a baker may learn how to pick locks from a
thief.  On the other hand, "profession" is just another word for "class."
If you have a profession of a thief, then your skills would be related to
a thief, and what ho, you'd have what we have now!
