$local is very often the dumping ground for such objects; there's just no 
commonly-accepted standard for this practice, though.  Short of telling 
everyone to port from one single MOO, it will come down to object numbers 
in the end I think.  Yr right, it is a standards problem.

Autoport includes an option called `owner'.  For example:
  @autoport 8888 Janus fat-chance #1234 owner=$hacker

By default, anything you port is owned by you.  The owner option lets you 
set the owner of what you're porting to something else.
