Well, in order to add such a feature so the users can toggle it, you'd 
have to add information to the user structure, thereby tampering with the 
user files.

I had the thought of creating an 'extended user datafile' in addition to 
the datafile that's present for each user.  If the datafile doesn't 
exist, the MUD presets all the values for the player and the player gets 
to configure their character as they wish, and so forth.

The MUD would also look at the current structure and upgrade it 
appropriately.  The theory behind this is simple; implementing it is 
another matter.  I suppose I'll have to play with files now. <grin>
