Agreed.  On my MOO (DartMOOth), which got off the ground a few days ago,
we are starting from Minimal.db.  I copied the eval verb from the 
README-Minimal.db (with the addition of a tick counter).  To improve it, 
one of the other wizards wrote a reasonable facsimile of toliteral().  When
I mentioned the existance of the built-in, he made a comment about hitting
his head against a wall.

I can see no advantage that tostr() has over toliteral(), so is this now
in the server purely for reasons of backwards-compatibility?
