Verb-line arguments's an idea that I was thinking about while trying to get it
sleep last night:

What about verb-line arguments that are builtin, for instance running a verb
with a -<argument> would do something different to the verb, for instance:

-quite --> no text output
-debug --> quicker than making it +d
-wait<#> --> wait to call the verb
-fork<#> --> for the verb a # of times (may need to be wiz-only)
-showobj --> shows the obj # that is sending each line.
     #9876>> The cat jumps up.
     #9877>> A man comes along to get the cat.
     #9876>> The cat runs around the room.
-showverb --> like above but also shows the verb name.

Just a thought.
