At the end of our do_command, there is this:
20:  if ("enabled" in player.prompt_options)
21:    set_task_perms(player);
22:    fork (0)
23:      player:prompt();
24:    endfork
25:  endif

(No, that's not the extent of the system, but that's the basic bit of it)
It seems to work reasonably well, but everyone seems to find prompts
irritating, so no-one uses them.
