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?)
