Re: [SERVER] optional verb call by server

Maybe this could be done through $server_options.disable_initialize_call, ...

While we are on the subject, there are several calls  that have various
potentially undesireable "side effects".  For example move() always checks
accept(), among other things.  One MOO that I've seen implemented the builtin
priority_post() to move things unconditionally.  Perhaps either more
$server_options or new, simpler builtins could be added)

hmm.  RISC-MOO coming soon?
