If you want generic, try 'initiator()'. Personally, I'd really like
something like that. There are quite a lot of times when I'd like to pin
down where  .tell() came from (usually from a room announce, from some
code on a user, started by...who? Being able to get the dbref of the
enactor would be a BIG help).
