SQL (and Perl) make the information easy to get to.  Otherwise it has to be
specifically coded to allow access to said information.  I suppose it
wouldn't be too bad in C linked lists, but you couldn't do things you
didn't anticipate when you compiled the MUD. (Dynamic modules aside)

You make a secret menu option 'i' that automatically sets you wizinvis
before you enter the game, therefore avoiding any enter messages.  I did
it, it was handy.
