For this idea, I don't think a MUD code base is really a good idea. Personally
I'd use something like TinyMUX or a MUSE codebase. These code bases come with
an inline programming language, which the various players can use to create
their own little worlds. The worlds can be locked to players, so no other people
can edit\delete them. Hope this helps.
