I probably shouldn't have used the term "muling".  Basically, since
your character only owns a single ship, he can't keep a 6-ship
garage of ships that are all optimized for specific tasks.  Since
building a ship is a rather lengthy process (and not particularly
cost effective when it comes to trade in value), you have to make a
fairly heavyweight decision every time you change ships.  And
because ships aren't transferable (at this point in time), you can't
bypass this by having multiple characters where N-1 of them are
simply place holders for your primary's other ships.
