FWIW, based on my own research if I was going to write a MUD from scratch, I would definitely use PIKE instead of what I'm using right now, Lua.  Lua is great for a lot of things, but full blown application development...no.  The main reason I'm using Lua is that it's purely dynamic, allowing me to "hot-swap" pieces of code completely, which is a handy feature.  With something like Pike it's not nearly as straightforward since Pike is typed (so changing a type dynamically is a lot more difficult).

Pike also really needs a lot more documentation.  But feature wise, it rocks.
