    networking, remote procedure calls, distributed rooms (VROOMS),
    property mirrors (caching)

    in-db multiple inheritance, integrating MI and SI objects

    WWW to MOO gateways

    client design, Client-Server messaging (MCP, XMCP/1.1, MacMOOSE,
    early MCP/2.0 prototypes)

gonna do the damned peer-review anyways!) and examples of MOO code,
most of which is portable to LMCore and JHCore MOOs.
