[plt-scheme] Scheme MUD?

Hey I just looked at the MUD lists, and the screenshots of "world" (
http://world.dv8.org/ ) look pretty good.

I don't see where the code is though.  (or the server. heh)

If you find (or start) a working scheme MUD server, post it to the list. It
does sound like a good start for programming education.  (really, everyone I
know started programming intending to write a game, and then "sold out" when
someone offered them money to do something else)
