  It's been thrown around so long you'll even find a small thread about it
in the old archives.  The sender (I forget who it was exactly, or even if
it was their original idea) suggested something along the same lines I came
up with, where you go through fighting rounds as normal with a seperate
timer counting down each 1/4 pulse (or something) until it hits zero where
the char gets to hit and a new timer is made.
  It doesn't take much to make, and I even consider it something a new-ish
but understanding coder should try atleast once (same goes for guns and
clans). :)
