Vote Jon Leonard for dictator!

Or just wait around for me to declare that there's no point in counting
votes, and that the official title is "project maintainer".

I think the wording was sufficiently pretentious, and that we're not
likely to see alternate proofs of concept in the near future.
(Even though I would welcome seeing one.)

I do think proofs of concept can be quite useful.  I have one under 
http://frost.slimy.com/devmud/, also running on frost.slimy.com port 2121,
with some minor upgrades.

I think that the next step is for me to upgrade it to use a module protocol,
some time in the next 48 hours.  After that it'll be time for a round of
commentary, and then probably time to start working on real module
definitions and code.

This presumes that by then we'll have some idea of what are good modules to
start with, and who is interested in working on them.
