I believe 'Traveller' on The Sprawl (sprawl.sensemedia.net 7777) has
been working on such a thing. How (well/if) it works I don't know.
Also, the documentation on MOO-net tells about 'virtual rooms'. Never tried
it myself, but it looks like you set up any number of virtual rooms which are
'shared' with a respective virtual room on another MOO. While this doesn't
allow universal transportation between any two rooms, it may be a good
starting point. http://arachnid.cm.cf.ac.uk/User/Andrew.Wilson/MOO-net/
