In a related vein....

Diogenes has an "introduction" system where what name you know 
another object by depends on whether you have been introduced.  I 
implemented it translating  #<number> in a string to 

Thus the string 
#23: Hi!

Shows as

pretty girl: Hi!

to people not introduced to sandra (pretty girl is her short 
description string) and

Sandra: Hi!

to people who have been introduced.  

The same mechanism handles nicknames, false names, etc...
