Yes, I've done just this (to a shomewhat lesser degree) in
AweMUD. After doing it, tho, I'm quite unable to decide what the
advantage is... I think having some concrete types (thing,
character, room, etc.) and then adding hooks (with a scripting
language) would probably make the code a *lot* simpler, faster, and
more easily extensible.
