A strategy might be: write your bot in MOO-code only if it's
temporarily active and triggered by MOO events. If the thing is
intended to run continuously, better to have it exist external
to the MOO, and to log in as a player.

Most 'pets' and greeting-objects and whatnot do not need to run
continuously -- just when somebody actually triggers them... so
there's no need for endlessly-forking objects.
