This, IMO, would be a "good thing".

I dont really agree with this part.  It makes people much more likely to 
use +int/wis/con items and this tends to inflate the stats of all the 
characters on the mud by quite a bit.  It also tends to reduce the 
differences between characters, as the orignial, random stats are less of 
an influence.

Just voicing my opinion on the issue.
