I've been thinking of using a b-trees with morton coded keys for my objects
(one tree per "area") and a quad tree (or several) for area information (again
per "area"). Though the biggest problem I currently see, for this and for the
R*-Tree is in how you store the actual players? I mean players move around,
thus requiring a delete and an insert... Sooo is this ideal? Am I thinking
along the wrong track? I like R*Trees but have yet to find enough info on em
(am trying to get a good book and spatial representations.)

Gonna go look into that neighborhood thread!
