No it wouldn't, it would just return when there are five ticks left,
letting the calling verb tick-out after the return. Alternately, call a
verb when there are five ticks left.
Also, fork could be used instead of suspend (yes, I know it's clumsy) to
get around a bf_suspend and handle_task_timeout tick-limiting thing.
A workable accounting system seems like an entry in the wish-list for a
next-generation server. (Any of the MOO-alternatives out there have
one? Cold 1.0 doesn't seem to, will 2.0? Others?)
