I think OOA/D is ideally suited for this particular problem just 
because of mud's potentially vast and abstract problemspace.

Do you mean clients that continue to function normally while the 
server is down?

Interesting. I have a smart client, but only in the sense that it 
parses/formats output and allow mouse input. Otherwise they are quite 
dumb.  There is a very small set of static graphics that is shipped 
with client.

My mud's time runs at a faster rate than real time and I can't really 
think of any reason why I would need external inputs into the server 
other than the user clients and my database.

If I'd known it was harmless, I would have killed it myself.
