	If you can get it :-) (as I havent quite yet).  They are hammered
quite hard.  

}MUD client?

	I was implementing something like this (as in an unbounded
landscape renderer for a MUD not a complete 400 meg game written by N
talented individuals).  As soon as the renderer can be decoupled from the
'game' (well at least partially.) .... neato.  Hopefully there is client
prediction etc.  

	As an aside.  The source is a (stated as) very OS independant
system including:
Networking
Threads
GUI
Rendering
Lisp-Like scripting
etc (these are just the most OS dependant, route following doesnt really
care)

	Ive been browsing a bit.  It seems to be well laid out.  It is in
C++.  Even if a text mud is desired the threads,networking and scripting
might be nice to look at.
