First of all, what do you mean by 'pulling'?  Do you perhaps mean calling 
a function?  If this is the case, then you may be in your wrong.  
command_interpreter is quite a high level function, yes, however it also 
checks positions and other such statements that help sanity within the 
code and how it performs.  I suggest rewriting the whole command 
interpreter if you already haven't.  The way it has been defaultly setup 
in circlemud code is very un-workable.

If you wanted to be 'more cpu efficient', you'd probably want to get rid 
of that space in front of 'all corpse' in your argument field.
