IIRC, there were a few MUDs that were either functional or close to
functional.  Aha -- look for "LambdaMOO".  (But I don't think that
are any MOOs that use Scheme.)

If anyone is interested in ancient code -- there was a decent MUD-like
game that we used in Cornell for a few semesters.  It was a fun
project -- with a single-player mode, multi-player mode (turn-based),
and network mode.  Having creative students on the course staff made
it very enjoyable (we had different themes in each semester).

Like I said, the code is ancient -- it was used sometimes around
1998-2001.  Heavily based on Swindle.  (But it will probably not be
too difficult to resurrect if anyone's really interested.)
