I'm looking at how to easy or hard it would be to implement intermud3 
for intermud communication (the '97 buzzword huh? Connect now with 
your Sega to the to the Intermud! SEGA!!!). Anyway, if I can actually
get to the coding part, I hope to get the intermud3 hooked up so
that I can join other muds in the same network (mostly LP and a couple
Diku muds).

Intermud3 has the following features:
