It was once suggested (by KMP, I think) that there be a way in the server to
flush all unprocessed input on your connection. I could certainly add a new
built-in `.flush' command to do that, but I'm concerned about quoting issues:
what if you really wanted to enter `.flush' as input to a MOO program? The
problem is that this special command I'd add would have to work at the I/O
level of the server, since by definition it can't wait until its turn comes up
in the user's command queue.
