For ease of use, I would think that it would be best to keep CircleMUD
and Oasis using the same method of playing with the bits.

There isn't a patch or instructions for converting OasisOLC to the 128
bitvector snippet. It is possible though, because I and a few others have
done it. I do remember that it took me somewhere around 13 hours to
convert OasisOLC to the 128 bits.

My only real advice is to have tons of caffine, some decent music, lots
of patience, and very few distractions while coding that. :)
