perhaps, Bob..could include stock areas, but make them easily
removed..i guess similar to mini-mud mode (say that ten times fast), but
that would only keep a few starting rooms and an immortal area..that way,
it would be playable out of the box, and if someone felt that they wanted
to be creative, they could easily be rid of all the areas...there seem to
be a lot of questions recently about removing all areas, and what effect
it has on the code...perhaps also have mini mode be a compile time
decision that will disable area specific code..

#ifndef MINI_MUD

something like that..
