Re: Request for LambdaMOO 1.8.0

Phantom's request is already on my *short* list of things to include in
1.8.0, but please note that, like everything else in MOO, the numeric
indicies will be 1-based, not 0-based.  It will also be possible to disable
the current treatment of (0-based) numeric strings as verb indicies.
