he chooses to patent them then he perhaps could.

Too bad his ideas have appeared elsewhere many times.  I've not looked
at his code, but overhead maps are on a number of muds.  Call it
wilderness if you want, it's still the same idea.

The world doesn't revolve around this guy's patch.

Maybe someday I'll release my overhead code... but let me tell you, it
can be really hard to get it right.  You have to work on a lot of
places... just recently, I found a bug where I wouldn't have expected
-- flee!  Ah well, that's a product of using a single room to hold
everyone and everything on the map.  But I digress.
