The suggestions below are only my personal opinions, and are only to be
taken as such.

Suggestions for additions to next official release:
- dig
- buildwalk (they can co-exist)
- [m|r|o]list <. | zone | start_vnum end_vnum>
- rcopy - I suggest adding this with a config.c toggle to turn it off
  Some implementors think it's bad form to encourage copying a rdesc.
- command escape in editor : /!mudcommand - perfect for replying to
  mudmail, since you can read the old message while formatting.

Important issues:
- make OasisOLC decide how overlapping zones are meant to be used,
  and especially how to handle the saving.
- modulize do_oasis. As it is it's quite hard to figure out, even for
  experienced programmers. A splitup in subroutines would help the
  over-all readability.

Other, more long-term, features, I'd like to suggest:
- modulization of the oasis menus (see Georges old todo.Oasis_Espec)
- context sensitive help system (I'm currently making one, that'll
  be easily expandable from DG scripts to OasisOLC[1])

Off-scope features, I'd say fitted OasisOLC:
- Zone flags (level range, builder names, zone description).


[1] Perhaps I'll just make it, submit it to you, and make my patch against
    your OasisOLC version later.
