The snippet is actually decent enough, and with some slight
modifications it slips
right in. Zmud already is designed for those directions (I don't know
about other
mud clients). I think they would be a great addition to the basic code.
of directions, I also think the scan command should be a part of it. So
you can
atleast venture a look around to see whats in the rooms.
My guess for reasons of not adding them, is to make the code (as is)
more stable
without adding anything. The downfall to that is that it is not
expanding per
the demand. There are many many snippets, codes, etc out there that
would make
a great addition to the base code.

So, George and Alex, any hints on the next BPL release? or even the next
Haven't heard anything for a while and was curious.
