People are often doing their own work alone because they perceive a lack
of quality in everyone else's work.  Or they simply want creative freedom.
Or they just don't work well together in a group.  I don't see such an
attempt as feasible.

Good muds never come along in 6 months.  Maybe the basis of a good mud.
Just as there are bottlenecks in a single-coder system, there are
compensating limitations to using a group of coders and administrators.
Not the least of which is design decisions and revision control.

But if people want to try it, I may commit a little bit of time.
