Oh, in that case, minimal.db is much too minimal. You would need a core
that would develop itself, since wizards, programmers and builders are all
"external" "means". I wrote an AI program a few years back which I might
port to MOO. I could even use it in the upcoming T'Hung'AMOO release.
I could also release the AI core! Thank you for the ideas.
