I think adding just the framework would be better, or the olcnote system
that was around. Although I use Oasis I think lots of people like to hack
their own solution.

I must say I don't agree with this (in the same way I don't agree porting
to C++), it hinders one of the best things Circle has. Portability.

I'd give a vote for this. I have been waiting for a nice stock
implementation of this (I haven't been able of making my own and the ones
around don't quite fit me).

I have no idea what this could be about..:)

I vote for the scripts, I still haven't used events but they seem to be

This is what I was referring to, since it is so simple it can easily be
substituted (specially if it is nicely contained in #defines) or coexist
with another solution.

Hadn't thought about this. What does it mean? instead of adding races or
classes in stock give only defaults that are editable or that can be added

I have been thinking about a "revert" command for Oasis (or any OLC), in
which you simply "reread" the latest saved version from disk and discard
changes. This could be good for when you really mess up a zone (whatever
reason) or for when you edit by hand while the mud is running.

This isn't implemented already, is it?
