An idea: There might be a way to get around doing all the re-constructing of
I/O, Cause one descriptor can only be attached to one character, you might
try sending both their descriptors into a seperate state and having their
commands from that state control a single mob.

Think of it as, you know, when you go into redit or medit or something like
you are sending your descriptor form your character to the editor, so you
might try sending their descriptor to just a simple prompt and the commands
control a single mob.
