level_exp leaves wide room for improvement.  many people end up changing
this things themselves.  others release patches.  i think redoing these
classifies as a "good thing".

I could have sworn I'd seen a snippet or patch on such a system, but after looking through the FTP site I was unable to locate anything pertaining to it.  Does anybody know the whereabouts of any reference at all to such a system?  Even one based on ROM or any other Diku-based MUD might be of help, seeing as they share similar aspects.

It seems like sometimes it is semi-parabolic, other times it is linear, and yet other times it is damn near random.  I've already replaced it with a much simpler system using a few formulas based on level (and in the process rendered close to 400 lines of CASE statements unnecessary [105 lvl mud, 100 mortal]), simply because it just seemed really wasteful to me.  Whats everybody else's take on this one?
