Looks like either no-one else has any comments, or I'm the only other
person on this list that is interested in such things. Well either way -
here is my comments/braindump.
As an idea I like it, mostly cos I implemented something similiar a few
years ago on my talker. I think the only bit where we differ wildly is
that I load the messages into memory at startup and you have them
hardcoded. Have you thought of doing it like that - I guess it only
really becomes handy if you're likely to change/add new translations
I already know I'm not going to use this method for my mud, however. I'm
going to translate at the word level by encoding each sentence into a list
of word IDs.
 Yes, I've written a talker - very handy for testing out socket code *8)
