The semantics of the language are governed by the run-time (and to a lesser
extent the parser/compiler) for that language. In other words, they can
vary depending on which modules are plugged in. Everything you do in the
MUD scenario will be built on top of those semantics, but the core *can*
support multiple semantics. That's one of the reasons why I haven't been
too concerned about that issue.
