Consider what we did.. we made rent free, yeah, but you can't just quit, 
you have to rent at the receptionists, but players aren't charged 

The reason *I* did this, was because, without just being able to quit, 
players could rent norent stuff, and WELL over the set max items you can 
rent... I had some rent files, i'd show rent, and there would be 90+ 
items in there, and I had the max set at 40.  The 'free rent just quit' 
code skips all those checks unfortuantly.... and also, this way it keeps 
players from using quit as a recall command.
