Try taking a look at the god commands system on the
Death Gate code (it is publicly available, but I forget
off the top of my head what the ftp site is - not the
circle ftp site :P )

It allows you to assign or take away individual god commands
to specific individuals.  That way, if someone is misusing
a given command, you can just take it away from them,
without having to completely demote them.
I would tend to use it in the reverse manner, however -
as imms prove themselves trustworthy, assign them more

        Il dort. Quoique le sort fut pour lui bien etrange,
        Il vivait. Il mourut quand il n'eut plus son ange.
        La chose simplement d'elle-meme arriva,
        Comme la nuit se fait lorsque le jour s'en va.
