You might not be aware that twisted (the popular asynchronous TCP/IP
server) was started as a MUD project.  It grew to do many other things
but Gylph still hacks on his MUD code in fits and starts (interesting
stuff too, not your typical LPC/Mush/MOO/Diku codebase).  There are
also a couple pure-python MUD clients if you're into that kind of

I still follow this stuff in passing because I learned more in
undergrad hacking LPC than I did in my classes proper (probably
because I spent hundreds of hours in class but thousands of hours
writing LPC).
