My reasoning for not doing a forced save of data is if a builder really
screws up and trashes out several of his rooms/mobs/objs/etc. we can
reboot and get rid of his mistakes without saving them to disk. If there
is just me and one or two other builders on, that is the best route to

A forced save would save the builder's mistake(s) to disk and he would
have to fix it all by hand.
