        Sure. They're easy to use.

        Screw the list template though.  Go straight to using maps, or
something worthwhile.  I was plotting a GUI editor a while back (should be
out by christmas, girlfriend willing), and decided to use lists. After
consideration, i switched to vectors (more like current code, plus vectors
are faster if you know what you're looking for).  Then, I realized maps do
all that, and then some, no vnum/rnum stuff to worry about.
