What does 'version' say?

If they've changed it, play around with known bugs in CircleMUD versions to
see what version it probably is.

For instance: bpl15 fixed a bug where to steal an object, the owner has to
be able to see it. (Hard to test, but you could get two people and an
invisible object I suppose.)

bpl14 would crash on 'version' but they've probably fixed it.

bpl15 also added:

-- gg - shop.c: 'buy 3' now possible and doesn't break 'buy 5 3',
        'buy 5 #3', or 'buy #3'.

So if they don't have that feature, it's probably pre-bpl15.

Changelog is your friend.
