Currently there is no such push, because Inform's library is conceptually
single-player only (this is evidenced by the amount of global state that
it maintains, how the player is treated as a facet of the world rather
than just another object, etc).
However, if you're interested in seeing inform-like functionality
implemented, we'd love to integrate such a thing. Even better if you can
make it more multi-player aware.

We do have plans for a twisted reality standard library, but they are
haphazard at this point. Look in twisted/library/ for what we've done so
