There has been an MCP-using GUI package for many years now:



And in addition to the original Java implementation, there's an
implementation in the (very nice) OS X mud client MudWalker:


And, although it is looking somewhat dead (hello, are you out there
Networker?), TkMOO has support for a fair number of MCP packages
that provide additional functionality.  And instead of having the
server dictate UI, they allow the client to display things as it


But all of these things have been brought up over the years on
MUD-Dev, nothing terribly new or exciting here, but that does seem
to be how the MUD world goes ...
