I have actually implemented something exactly like this on my MUD.  To
keep the MUD from saying "Huh?!?" I simply created an "autorun" command
which basically does nothing.

I also changed it so that an alias can call another alias (but the same
alias still cannot be called recuresively).  this allows players to
create multiple-command aliases without the limitation of the
command-line length.

A nice side effect of the "autorun" alias is that immortals can set
things such as poofin and poofout with it since those don't save.
