We generally discuss both.  The moo programming hassles tend to be related
to wizard type questions, but occasionally we digress.

The only real requirement for the list, is that the subject concerns a moo
in some or other way.

Typically, on a LambdaCore system, this sequence occurs,

player:say -> room:announce -> object:tell -> object:notify

and that will be true for all objects in the players location, regardless of
whether they are players or not.  In other words, every single object on the
moo should have a :tell verb.
