Re: A new editor for MOO.

Hmmm..... I want to go on record as saying, that I am not in favor of a
moo client, that just does MOO stuff, like editing.... On the other hand
a plug-in to Netscape that allows you to run a telnet in a separate frame
or window, is not in my opinion a bad idea, even if the design of the two
programs is incompatible at some level. It seems to me, that a Telnet
session could be run on one socket, and a netscape application on a number
of others, resulting in completely different applications running in a
simultaneous manner. But then, I don't know what is going on INSIDE
netscape. :)
