The idea would be to control the AI traffics ( creation, animation and
deletion ) from an external program with the telnet interface.
Someone ask me if it is possible lately, and I think he is prepared
to do the required changes. I already suggested him to design new
commands for creation/deletion and use the properties for animation.
They would be 'run' from the telnet prompt.
