	   Wouldn't running an extra procedure on every string output by the mud 
   slow it down somewhat?

I believe they are referring to strings written to world files by the OLC
system.  This would only be done once per string (when its written to nn.wld
or nn.obj or whatever), not everytime the string is shown to a user.
Or, I could be completely misunderstanding, too...
