This eats up a lot of processor time may be saving a
large file many times...especialy if someone is trying to perfect
a script, and has to make numerous small changes, which would
each require a full saving of the file.

It would be possible to write a function that cycles through the
list of modified zones and saves each one.  This could be a
useful command, and could also be called whenever the MUD
goes down for a copyover.
