On the other hand, you have the option of wearing the 'researcher'
hat. This gives you a real, legitimate justification for producing
almost nothing (except learning a lot). Remember, there are people
who do research full time, including in engineering. MUD design
seems hardly as nailed down even as engineering - although usually
the orientation of a designer IS generating a product.  In research,
your product is what you learn and communicate.
