rcode on IMC2 already does something like this for those muds that are
connected. We have had quite a few newbie questions in the past, but that
seems to have died down to a dull roar. We get quite a bit of intelligent
discussion on there now, and it's a good place to bounce ideas off people.

I've been meaning to look into hooking up IMC2 with (one of?) the LP
intermud protocols, and maybe the circle-based intermud (although that
looks a bit hairy), if anyone's interested.
