Re: [SERVER] chparent()

This patch is *not* correct; it does not properly call the verb in question and
it will either crash your server or, at the very least, give you very strange

I strongly urge people *not* to install this patch in their servers.

Kai, you might want to spend some time studying other built-in functions that
include MOO verb calls, such as create(), recycle(), and move(), before posting
patches of this kind.  There is a fairly intricate protocol required to do this
properly and massive lossage can occur if you cut corners.  In particular, you
should try to learn enough to know why `call_verb()' *never* actually calls the
verb in question.
