Well, no, actually, it doesn't help at all.  MudCore is coded in in C++, it
uses a totally different way of storing things.  I looked at the source, and
it's all nice and such, but helps me little in my endeavor to do this with
the CircleMUD codebase.

Sure, I could recode the entire descriptor and everything like that, and I
could recode nanny() but it would not help me and others that want to use
CircleMUD and have a slim chance of patching up to the latest version,
although that's not going to be a problem now, with Circle 4.x as the next
mission around here, but still.

Makes sense?
