Agree totally.. elVIs rocks! :)  
I used 2 months [plus some debugging which is not done yet] to code an
OLE [OnLine Editor] Menu driven...  But in the long run its still much
easier to use a simple text editor.. As soon you kno wthe format, you
can write down a mob/obj/world/zone file in no time. [Without typo check
ofcoz :) ]   OLC/OLE on MUDs are basically only useful for fixing stats
on mobs and objs, plus exits on rooms and other small stuff...
