Re: new builtin request

I like it.  PennMUSH (don't flame for the reference, hinthint) has something
like this (it's called @uptime), which displays a lot of relevant information
about how the system is running, memory usage, etc.  It looks like its a 
system command executed from a shell or something and the output is just
redirected to the caller, but i'm not sure about that.   If this were
implemented, IMHO we should have a lot more relevant data on the system,
including DB size and other fun stuff, with the system load averages, etc.
Since i'm not a C code reader, I couldn't tell you wether this would be
compatible over the different operating system architectures but it should
be from what I understand.

Very feasable.  Although I run MUSH at the moment, it's little things like
this that would make me want to switch over to MOO again.
