The lack of documentation is a known problem and I think an extra effort is
made to fix that problem. Anyone interested can check

Um.... this is the reason I'm using Pike. I develop my virtual world "from
the inside". I actually log in to it and develop code in runtime.
Dynamically replacing code is essential to me.

The only running MUD i know that uses pike right now is YumeMUD. Made by the
author of Pike - Fredrik Hubinette - and can be found at
http://www.hubbe.net/. The actual MUD-code you have to ask for.
