Transform the ADOM REPL architecture into an event based architecture

Internally ADOM currently uses REPL for the interaction with the player. In order to be able to both add new team based functionalities and to move innovations from ADOM II to ADOm it makes sense to introduce and event based architecture like in ADOM II.

While this poses a lot of new challenges the long-term benefits hopefully will outweigh the challenges.

That will open up many opportunities more sophisticated modeling of speed/latency, giving "focus" to a being other than the player, multiple points of "focus", uniformity of model world side-effect scheduling, etc. Given the scale of ADOM, it does sound like a difficult transform, but certainly a worthy one.

It sounds like ADOM II is already using discrete event simulation instead of read-eval-print?

Yes, ADOM II is miles ahead of ADOM as far as architecture goes. But miles behind as far as content goes. And currently it seems to me that content is harder to catch up with architecture although the architecture challenge is enormous with ADOM, too.

The initial work is done. Upcoming iterations will refine the system but ADOM now is running on an event driven architecture and REPL is mostly gone.
