Both zMUD and Rapscillion are very popular MUD clients, and considering
that I wouldn't want to make the majority of players on a MUD have to
switch clients in order to make it work right, I think it would be more
prudent to revert the applicable changes to bpl16.

As an idea for bpl17 how about making the echo_on() and echo_off()
changes optional by selectively compiling based on a #define (btw I
would recommend disabling it by default)?
