It's just an idea.
As there is an infinity of things that a character can do, and it's almost impossible to code them all. I think that a simple command that 'rolls' for a skill or a ability would settle most things.
Like on an arm wrestle, both players would check their strenght and compare the results.
The results can be descritive instead of a number like the skills are. Someting like fumble, fair, average, good, excelent as results.
With that there won't be a need for coding armwrestling or other minor things like a running contest.
And with that a whole way of RP would arise, think sports, quick draw contests, and the whole macho testing stuff.
