Using "set src in usr" would be an option, though I would rather use something a little different, like "set src in usr.client.screen" or "set src in usr.group". Both of these are actually legitimate src settings and work, but not for datums. (Incidentially, I learned by experimenting with this that the group list doesn't count for garbage collection, something in usr.group can still get garbage collected...)
I suppose the first thing I should ask is if I can find a complete list of legitimate src settings. The one in BYOND ref is far from complete, listing only the most common ones.
This is the code that I've been working with (not that it's anything too exciting)
Does anyone know of any lists that can be used for accessability that allow datums? (Or any way to circumvent the datum problem, such as a list?) I really would prefer not to turn the datums into atoms, I'm expecting to use many of these, and I don't want the extra resource drag of atoms.
I suppose I could create a proc to transfer the verbs, but if a cleaner solution is possible, I'd take it.
