Lets see...  MRT was set when you compiled a program.  (It was one of the
defaulted fields on the compile screen that we always accepted, as is.) 
It had to do with the number using a copy of a program at one time. 
Usually one would have programs be SRT, and every user would get his own
fresh copy.  MRT was useful for your own built-in TALK command for
instance, where user #1 would start the program and user #2 would join in
on the same copy.
