The other problem I see with this, or any type of speed walking, is if
you have NE, NW, SW, SE directions on the MUD.  How can you saw you want
to go NW without the system thinking you mean go north, then west?  (Yet
another example how one snippet that works fine on one MUD, is rendered
broken on another)
