SYNOPSIS
	void reset(int arg)	/* compat mode */
	void reset(void)	/* native mode */

DESCRIPTION
	In compat mode, reset() is called with arg 0 after the object
	was compiled, and with arg != 0 every once in a while.	In
	native mode, create() is called after compiling, and reset()
	is called without arguments every once in a while.

	So, if the argument is zero, the parser is running in compat
	mode, and reset() may call your create() code. If create() is
	called, you're on the new version and reset() is not called
	for object creation. You may call reset() from create() and
	vice versa, but make sure they do not call each other
	recursive on either type of driver.

	reset() will be called only in objects that have been used
	since the last call to reset(), i.e. a function in them was
	called (other than reset() or clean_up()), or it was moved
	around.

	This function can be used to reset the state of the object or
	do some checks or what ever. The game wouldn't be fun if no
	challenges remained.

	For 3.2.1, the mudlib can be programmed to call an other lfun
	than reset() to reset an object.
