	   Is it just me but there appears to be no more "@dig" or "help
   building" anymore in the new database!
	   How does one create new rooms with the new core?  HELP! <g>

Your problem is that the players you are creating (which is controlled
by $player_class) are simple $players, without building capability.
If you chparent these to $builder, they will be able to @dig.  If you
change the value of $player_class to $builder, then this will happen
by default.

The help building problem is caused by a core extraction problem,
however, fortunately the actual help text *is* in the core, it just
isn't available to your programmers.  Execute the following on your
MOO (assuming you have not changed the property already---if so I will
assume you understand the help system well enough to modify these
instructions accordingly):

;$ = $builder_help

You see, the help system is itself object oriented, and has a
hierarchical nature which is controlled by the .help property on all
the ancestors of the player typing "help".  I'll fix the core
extraction process to not nuke $; I don't know why this
