*shiver* i shudder to think of this feature. seriously, your only choice 
is to rewrite the entire load-ing process. remember to pass an arg to 
save(). figure out what it is your mud needs and code it in. i dont think 
anyone is sure of just what loadroom is supposed to do, but as of, say, 
pl3, it is a mess. if this is supposed to be a 'middle-of-the-road' 
configuration option, it should be just that. stick somethin in config.c 
that can define rent ON/OFF, houses, etc. so we can bypass this 
foolishness. right now the code is scattered and rent/non-rent is heavily 
hard-coded. i think this problem should be addresses before release.
