Amiguous Matches

  I am running a MOO in which a player may wind up in a room with several
objects with the same name, (ie a room full of swords or whatever)

 I wanted to switch around do_huh, so that if an ambiguous match occurs, the
player can select the item from a list, or at the very least, will be
returned to the first item on the list.
Unfortunately, it appears that the parser already decides that it doesn't
know which verb you mean before it ever hits do_huh. Am I reading this
right? Is there any way to solve this dilemma?  I was using the standard
Lambda core, with the get verb on thing in my testing of this code.
