[feature list, snip...]

Ahem.  I'm a little piqued, to be honest, that the intermud
communitaction protocol even exists.  Mainly cuz it sucks.  But
then I would say that wouldn't I.  MOO-net did all this 3 years
ago (whine, gripe, moan...) and a lot more besides.

You can take it from me though that everything proposed for i-3 is
possible, and teaching cold all about it will be trivial.

The subtext, that LPC developers, Cold developers and MOO developers
don't talk to each other and that as a result everyone is running
around chasing their tails redesigning crap that other people
discarded years ago, does not make good reading.

And since 'tis the season, Bah humbug!
