All this is true, of course, but I'd still like to hear suggestions for
sub-wizard classes.  Perhaps the ability to @boot, to read all code, and
maybe to change property permissions.  I want to remain the only
Archwizard/God on my MOO, but I'd like to give others the ability to muck
(within limits) with others' objects.

It'd be nice to have a few demigods around who could handle emergencies, and
if only code that *needs* to be wizardly *is* wizardly, they can handle a
lot of emergencies (well, rampant tracebacks) and edits without editing
wizardly code.
