I actually suspect that there has always been a lot of from-scratch
development going on.  Its just that most of them either never
finished, or if they did finish, never really say much of the light of
day.  For all the fact that they have a great product, ColdX is almost
utterly unknown to the greater MUD Imp/admin crowd.  Start mentioning
things like Cool, Cold, or Interlude (a personal favourite) and you'll
draw a total blank with most.  Think of how little exposure Uber,
Unter, Yama, etc got back in their day.

Agreed.

Aww, come on.  We all sing the praises of DIKU regularly.  Well,
fairly regularly.  Sorta.  Yeah.  Well, at least once or twice a
century.  Okay, we'll sing them, uhh, as soon as we find something
praise-worthy?  Of course we haven't yet...
