I find it rather more comfortable to type just type 'mpedit :42' to edit
the mobprog to modify just a few letters or such, and have my editor pop
up right away, and when I leave it, upload the data directly to the MUD -
rather than having to cut/paste the thing by hand.

Especially if the program is longer than the number of lines on your

This pretty much applies to editing any other text. Just writing the
initial stuff in an editor and pasting it may be much easier with mudFTP,
but modifying existing text sure is.

Another thing you avoid using mudFTP is alias expansion: quite often I
come up on very strange notes people have written because they put an e.g.
"a" at the beginning of a line, and their MUD client expanded it to "cast
'acid blast'".
