I can't help ya with the reroll, but here is a suggestion.

I have made a macro file in my src directory that runs a full backup to
remote directories on my system (depending on what type of backup I want to do).

After I get a new piece of code working good, I do a 'final backup', which
is src
files that are 100% bug free (to my utmost knowledge). If I ever 'confuck'
term the admins of my mud came up with) my src files, I just copy my src
files from
the final backup spot and recompile, bingo. Back to square 1.

It has saved my ass several times.
