Is it possible to use the ability of Java to dynamically load
classes to make it easier to add new features to your MUD without
recompiling?  I was thinking that instead of having code snippet
archives it would be cool if there was some source of expandable
Java classes.  You know, if you want this new feature, simply
download this .class file and load it into the server using the
graphical front end.  Then simply reboot the server (this might not
be necessary) and without recompiling or anything you have updated
your server.

I don't know if this were possible, but if it is I would probably
attempt to implement it in my MUD which I am about to start writing
any day now :)
