Hmmms. Do we have the same definition of minimal and great mechanism ?
A 700 lines verb that cause commands like @grep to run out of ticks is
neither minimal nor great.
It just perfom a job. If the users of that verb were less lazy they would
have rewritten it... or is everyone disgusted by digging through 700 lines
of code ? (No offense Def.)

Ever heard about $sysobj and $no_one? no? maybe you should not port stuff...

Do you port obj with your wizard character ? if yes, please leave me the
address of your MOO... I will drop by...


I love Pavel's 0 object minimal db, that's minimal. :)

Janus (very lazy - why should I use @autoport when emacs does the job more
quickly and without wiz perms ?)
