I'm not sure if this would work in 2.2, but if I wanted to do the same in 
3.0, I'd look into the code that determines when it's full (do a grep on 
the max player variable), and change it so instead of turning people 
away, it wizlocks the game at a level high enough that only the gods you 
want on will get on.  You'll also need a check to turn this off if the 
number of players decreases.

This would keep a limit on mortals, but would allow as many gods on as 
you've got.
