In the beginning, God created the $sys and the $root. The $root was
without form and void, and darkness was upon the the face of the $root.
And God typed @let_there_be $light and there was $light...

Its possible I suppose.  Considering that I am implementing a world
with active and interactive dieties this is a plausible IC activity.

I wonder if this would hold true if your theme was along the lines
of "Neuromancer".  I would think that programming might be an IC
activity in such a world.
