One idea I think "subdues" the need to pkill is make a pk room flag, where by if
someone kills a player in that room they ill not get pk flag, and you can also
controll as to what punishment or what ever (exp etc wise).. I have developed
this idea into a type of battle ground, where players can kill other players 
for exp (very very limited), neither player dies as such but does have 
"battele" ground stats etc...

Just a Thought
