You have a point. I declare "Free Trade [jwalrus]" dead and propose the 
following alternative:

Nearly Free Trade [jwalrus]
"Any player may post an intention to donate a given number of brownie 
points to a specified other player. The other player may accept the 
donation by posting intent to do so, at which point the donor's brownie 
points shall immediately decrease by that number and the recipient's 
brownie points shall immediately increase by the same number. A player may 
retract any donation which has not yet been accepted by the other player by 
posting intent to do so."

(My interpretation of Rule 42 is that it would forbid a player from 
accepting a negative donation if it would cause their brownie points to 
become negative. If you disagree, feel free to make an alternate proposal.)
