If the MUD is going to sleep and the timer is running, you may as well
reboot at that point.  I would think an idle MUD would indicate a safe time
to reboot.  I guess it depends on why you want the time-delayed reboot in
the first place.  If you want it to reboot at an absolute time, then I would
suggest altering the amount of time that the MUD will sleep when a reboot
has been requested (take the smaller of the normal sleep interval or the
time to reboot).  That's all in the game_loop function in comm.c, I believe.
