I haven't tried your patch, but I admire that you actually got around to
make changes in the mapper, something I never had time to do :)

Is this diff against 0.10? We (mostly me :) is currently rewriting
gnome-mud completely into using glade instead of direct gtk-code. This
can be found in cvs under the "gnome-mud-glade-branch"-branch.

I don't think I've touched the mapper code at the moment, but that would
be the next step as well. I know I haven't done much at all for a few
month now, but I'll try to get going again.

That would be a nice. I had a quick look at zmud's mapper which seems to
use access database format. It would be really cool if gnome-mud could
set the standard xml to use for maps.
