Jeremy had indicated that any new version of CircleMUD would use bitfields
instead of (blocks of) bitvectors. So, unless he's changed his mind lately,
they will eventually show up in a MUD near you. (Think 4.0 time frame, not
3.x for all x.)

Playing around with OasisOLC v1.7 currently.  It's quite a bit different
than what I have in store for Oasis 2.0 and makes me want to rewrite it
(again). :)
