The legendarily hard-to-grab Greg Stein responded to an email from me. I'm confident he's ok with me posting most of the email, but juuust in case, I'm redacting some stuff which I think might be too personal without an explicit approval.

Heya,

To respond to a very old thread... :-P

Somebody just asked me about MUD stuff, and I pointed him your way. Found this old thread.

Late, but sure. It's some old MudOS code (iirc). We looked at porting to Python, but didn't get far.

That would be on a hard-drive sitting in a stack. I've got about ten to go thru one day, but that won't be any time soon. I doubt the code diverged much, and that was a long time ago anyways.
