This is an excellent idea. I think I will have to learn more about Windows
programming before I attempt to do this myself :)

The problem however, is designing or finding the proper images (sounds are
easy), and to be done correctly, would require an awful lot of images. You
could develop a near-graphical mud interface using a client that supports
MSP and your proposed MGP while at the same time still being a full text
mud for those that can't (or don't want to) use those clients.
