What I have done on my mud is limit the level at which a player can see
his/her stats to level 8. This way a player cannot have himself/herself
loaded with perfect levelling gear from the getgo. I simply modified the
do_score code in act.informative.c to check for the players level. If the
player's level is >= 8 then strcat the players stats onto buffer in an
appropriate format for display.
