I don't think speed in zone building implies lack of quality.  Good
builders may spend weeks planning a zone out in their heads or on paper,
and much longer writing good descriptions, but they don't want to spend a
lot of time doing the grunt work of transferring ideas into mud data.

I think David's reason for saying offline building is fastest is the fact
that you can write descriptions much more easily.  The rest is a pain in
the butt in my opinion.  I think the best way to build is to do everything
but descriptions using olc, then get the files and do descriptions

Using stock obuild and a few aliases, I can throw together a large (300
room) preplanned zone in under an hour.  Putting descriptions on
everything may take me months :)
