Is there any way to actually compare the descriptor ip's?  Like when a
new player connects, do something like this?

for(d=descriptor_list; d; d = d->next;){
if(strcmp(new_connection.ip, d.ip) != 0){
mudlog("Warning! Multiplayer! Muhahahaha!", BRF, LVL_IMMORT, TRUE);

Note that this is all _really_really_really_ fake code, but is that how
you'd go about doing it?
