Hehehehe, I offered to make a patch for MUDs with AEDIT when I first made
godset, but it's not really all that hard of a change.  I had to go
through the whole command table when I did OLC+ anyway, due to the little
"cpp_extern" thing (caused that whole hunk to .rej -- *sigh*).

BTW, I think I left an instance or two of "do_action" in interpreter.c --
the "wave" command for example.  Not sure.

I personally would have to trust somebody beyond where I'd worry about
them writing backdoors.  I code my MUD mostly by myself, but I let a
trusted friend try to code out his ideas...  which of course I go over
immediately afterwards.  :P


The only advantage to multiple coders is that they can have alternating
vacations, I suppose.  :P
