Some friends and I were thinking about writing a new MUD server from
scratch and I thought it would be wise to collect information from
people who have been running&coding them. :-)

Our plans (at present) are to make a compiler/interpreter for a custom
OO language and build the actual MUD completely in this language. As I
understand it, MOO already takes this approach. What I would like to
gather is a list of features that people consider essential to a MUD
programming language.

I also wanted to know of what MUDs currently implement any of the
following: multithreading, guis, exploiting client processors, pgp
certificates about players so their characters can move from one server
to another w/o the two servers ever talking directly.

Thanks alot.
