this is unrelated to built-in prompts, which i care little about, but i
have written verbs that do not display any output to the player. they are
used for handshaking on a moo client i have written. if is effective since
the client does not print out the command iwhen it is sent, and the
command produces no output. the user remains ignorant. as users should be.
