But why would you store these objects containing information in the MOO itself?
Just keep the information in external files and use FUP.
Or better yet, keep the information in a regular database and query the 
database from inside the MOO. At NIU I have a MOO running that has an 
object (called the Query Machine) that will take an SQL query, send it
to a Sybase Database running on the same machine and bring the result of
the query back into the MOO.  No need to bloat the MOO database with
information that could be kept outside.

This should bring some interesting responses. :)
