We haven't made any hard and fast decisions yet.  Although I am still in
favor of the O-O approach myself as well.

I also agree that the in-mud language should NOT be a subset of C++.  At
least not a very robust subset.  I'd prefer the in-game language to be
simple, easy to use, and catered primary to the game environment, rather
than something appropriate to complex coding.  If that isn't something
everyone else wants, perhaps we could have one in-game language plugin
which is simple like the above (perhaps a subset of a more complex
language), for non-programmers to use, and then have a more robust language
for programmer use?  Although, I think that most of the really complex
stuff will be more appropriate to a plug-in for the driver in most cases.

Best,

Darrin
