Since this wasn't really formally proposed, and since there were some
loose ends to it (discussed on the MUD), I'm going to try proposing a more
technical and complete version of that based on the #nomic discussion, in
the form of four rules:

Soup and Sandwiches [Jota]

I. When this rule goes into effect, a prize token will be created with the
   name "The Bus Driver's Lunchbox". Its initial location will be Zrblm;
   it's initial destination will be the current location of the Magic
   Omnibus at the time the token is created. Its value will initially be
   indeterminate. Whenever brownie points must be awarded for the dropping
   of the token, its value will be determined by a die roll (and will
   again become indeterminate immediately afterward).

II. The size (in sides) of the die to be used to determine the value of
    The Bus Driver's Lunchbox will be associated with that token. This
    size will initially be 18. After each time it's rolled, its size will
    be decremented by one, unless no such die is available, in which case
    it will be decremented until such a die is available. If this
    decrementing ever reaches zero, the token will cease to exist.

III. After each time brownie points are awarded for the dropping of The
     Bus Driver's Lunchbox, its location will be changed to a room chosen
     by random selection from the list of all rooms not including the one
     it was just dropped in.

IV. If at any time the destination of The Bus Driver's Lunchbox and the
    location of the Magic Omnibus location are not the same room, the
    destination of The Bus Driver's Lunchbox will immediately be set equal
    to the location of the Magic Omnibus.

Note that, so as not to conflict with earlier rules, a player delivering
the token still must name a destination for it. (That destination is just
immediately overridden if it's not the location of the Omnibus.)
