In my MUD, I basically just had the MUD automatically save the zones and
not require another argument. (And added 'shutdown now' in case I didn't
want to save.)

Would people prefer that the zones are automatically saved or that the MUD
prevents shutdowns? (I found the preventing shutdowns to be annoying
personally, since I'd have to save everything by hand and then shutdown.)
