try set_connection_option(player, "client-echo", 1) I don't know if that'll
work, because echoing characters is mostly a client thing, not a in-moo
thing, however telnet clients should respond to these kinds of things from
the server, if a person is telnetting directly in it'll work, but not
necessarily with some clients.
