[COLD] What can I do with $robot?

I created a clone of $robot and changed a couple of 
attributes, but I don't seem to know how to use/extend the
$robot.  As a minimum I would like it to behave like
a MUSH puppet so that I could:
	-set it so the object hears and the messages
		can either be pattern-matched or 
		processed in some other way
		(for example on LambdaMOO I have 
		a puppet with a tell_to set to me)

	-have it respond to tells/pages so I can get 
	it to do things.

Maybe I need to create a listening thing object.  
But I don't know how to get the object to respond to

Thanks for any help.
