I think it's about time someone told you that you need more experience with
MOOs.  You have been constantly posting to the mailing list with one-line
questions for things that (in my opinion) all ArchWizards should know.
Re-read the prorammer's manual, re-read the FAQs, and ask, once all other
sources have failed to answer.  I suggest finding your favorite LambdaCore
MOO, getting a programmer's bit, and asking the heck out of all the users
there.  Learn the ins and outs, perhaps some politics too, and then try to
get a wizard bit.  Once you are able to do this, THEN you have the knowledge
to start your own MOO.  I went through 4 wizard bits and a very good tutor
before starting my first LambdaCore MOO.  It took me four crashes and
another wizard bit before I could even THINK that I could use something
'minimal' .. ie, minimal.db.

Of course, you should also realise that all those bugs bother you, wouldn't
if you didn't stumble across them, so it's just a matter of preference:
buggy object or no object at all.
