For what it's worth, I wrote a trivial change to the way movement is 
handled for IdMOO.  Instead of calling WHERE:accept(WHAT) as tradition 
dictates, the builtin calls #0:accept(WHAT, WHERE), and #0:accept is 
programmed to call WHERE:accept(WHAT) normally.  I'd propose that people 
interested in de-side-effecting builtins follow that course instead of 
making an all-or-nothing server option.
