Much to my suprise, this was easier than I thought I would be.

I defined my MONEY types.

I updated the player-> from a plain (int) to an array (int gold
[NUM_MONEY]). Of course I updated the save/load parts of the ascii pfile to
support this also.

I defined an float array with the values of the currency in them and a char
array with the names.

I defined a GET_MONEY(ch, i) (ch->[i])

Updated the gold and score commands to do a for loop to print out which
currency types you have and how much.

I was really suprised that the hacks to shop.c were as easy as they were. I
created a function to conver the currency, and wrapped that around the
buy_price and sell_price, and then changed the GET_GOLD calls to GET_MONEY
calls and everything seems to be working fine.

About all I need to do now if finish changing all the GET_GOLD calls to
GET_MONEY, and make the db load of mobs take the set gold value they should
have and change it to whatever the regional currency type is.
