Well i'd like to rent simple object created by the skin skill, or by some

I'd like to ask another thing..
        Since the string function doesn't work, because
        if i change an object name the mud would change
        the name of every copy of that object, to be able to do
        things like restring, should i put short-descr etc in the
obj_file_elem ?
