There's already a 3D-ftp client that, with the right equipment, lets you 
ftp through a VR setup.  A friend of mine had the chance to try one; I 
think IBM developed it, I'm not certain.  Rather amusing, actually.  I'd 
like to see a MUD developed in this fashion, and I believe I have the 
contacts to accomplish such a function.
