250 fits inside a unsigned byte's range, which is 0-255.  You can't have
negative values for the stats anyway, so there's no reason CircleMUD uses
'sbyte' and you can harmlessly change it to 'ubyte' without affecting
binary player file compatibility.  From there it seems like some work in
handler.c to fix limits and constants.c for the tables.  I think that's
all of it.

Seems pretty straight-forward, albeit time-consuming.
