Get a better client.  I think there is a list in the FAQ of  I use tinytalk myself, hacked to bring up the editor
of my choice (i.e. emacs) whenever I invoke a MOO editor (it involves
some hacks to the MOO editor code, too.)  I know a number of people
who hack MOO a lot use moo.el (Emacs-based client); it ought to be
easy to include a file of your choice using that method.
