        It worked by setting a flag 'unique' on the objects, and saving
them special if that was the case.

        His code was also rather bug ridden, and only worked for all
simple cases, and even then not so well.  I'd suggest taking a long look
at all related posts previous to installing this patch, since the major
bugs at least, are pointed out there.

        On the other hand, I hear that the second version of it is almost
done (class and job and friends and women (well, maybe) and partylife
willing), and includes an ieditor just like oedit, for ease of alteration.
Little problems with the extra descriptions, but not to worry.
