  Well, at work we handle persistence in applets by passing them their
identity (the name of their user or whatever) via an applet parameter and
sucking data from a server over a socket or jdbc connection. That's good
enough for our virtual conferencing system and presumably it'd be good
enough for a mud client as well.
