Ok, having heard everyone's responses I'll say "aye" to this.

> Any two rooms whose names, ignoring any articles ("the", "an", and "a"),

Having discussed this with Jota on ifMUD, we're both of the opinion that 
the map resulting from this is too highly connected. Jota has an 
alternative suggestion which I believe he's about to post either now or 
once the proposal allowing changes to the map has passed. So: Nay.

>> Once per turn, the active player may move him/herself by posting
>> intention to do so.
