What?!  To my knowledge that block in perform_violence() is the only
thing preventing the code from letting you hit while you're sitting.
See that "continue;"?  That makes the code loop through again before
it get to everything below it.

Of course, to be able to start a fight in POS_SITTING you'll have to
change the minimum position for the "kill" command in interpreter.c.
Did you actually try it or did you just look at it and decide it wouldn't
