It would be nice if text2path("/mob/verb") returned a path. Right now, it doesn't work for verbs.
Use call().

If you looked at what I wrote, you would have noticed that I only wrote out "/mob/verb", for which call() doesn't return anything.

Probably because "mob/verb/" is not a complete path.

1) I typed it as /mob/verb
2) typesof() seems to like it.
