Civilization V Is Getting A Hot Seat Mode

Wow! It's a good day for passable games getting additional modes. Civilization V, which Alec and I both saw eye to eye about, will be getting updated with a hot seat mode within the next couple of months (hotseat being a multiplayer mode where several players take turns taking... uh, turns on the same PC). Which might seem like a long time to wait for a feature that appeared in Sid Meier's Civnet way back in 1995, but presumably the technology behind it is now so old and irrelevant that nobody understands it anymore, like the tech behind the Apollo space program or the recipe for Greek Fire. Is that likely? I think so.
