Being a Coder, an implementor or a builder is a position of
responsability and power.  I would far prefer to give it to someone who
has already demonstrated a commitment to the mud.  Someone who has a
stake in the game and would not want to spoil it.  Someone I've had time
enough to know tha they will not go powertripping or start messing
things up.  A mud represents a lot of hard work by a lot of people and
those people should be the ones to enjoy the rewards this brings.  Would
you give the keys to your house to someone who just walking in off the
street and said they wanted to redecorate it and make a few little
structural changes?
