At paradigm, where mobiles are very common, I wrote some code similar to the
lambda puppets'.  The code (rather slowly) runs $do_command(), then searches
for an appropraite verb, makes it +x, and runs it.  It would give MOO a
great boost if NPCs could run commands without all the laggy batch verbs.
