I liked handling exp differently (back when I used it)...

The idea was that exp was a bank account. You cashed in
exp to gain levels. If you ever got to -(exp_to_level) you were
permanently dead. This didn't kick in until level 10..

An idea... hopefully worth the bandwidth required to send it :-)
