the C++ bit sounds cool.  As for the other stuff, preety much everything has
ground to a halt because of the server crashing error.  Nobody can do anything
until its fixed.  You can live with some errors--like the dbref bug, and
even the disappearing parameters, but NOT the segfault upon startup.  I think
Zachary is having a friend run the server through purify, as it seems like its
a memory problem somewhere along the line.
