I just thought I'd recap my outstanding proposals for baf's sake, in case
he missed anything while working his way through all his email.

This proposal for three rules has been supported by jwalrus and Psmith
explicitly and Roger and myself explicitly:

A Token Proposal [Jota]:

I. The set of "tokens" will be a part of the game state. A token must have
   a name and a location. That location may be any room, player, or
   servant. Tokens may be added, removed, or modified by unanimous

II. "Carrying" a token will be defined as being that token's location. To
    "drop" a token one is carrying will be defined as setting its location
    equal to one's own location. To "pick up" a token whose location is
    the same as one's own is to set the token's location equal to oneself.

III. At any point during a turn, the active player may choose to pick up
     any appropiate token, drop any carried token, or cause his or her
     servant to perform either of those actions by posting clear intent to
     do so. These actions may be taken as many times as desired, in
     whatever order desired, to the same or different tokens as desired,
     provided the action is not prohibited by any other rule or rules.

This proposal for one rule has been supported by jwalrus and Psmith
explicitly and Roger and myself implicitly:

Xyzzy II [Jota]:
  Once per turn, the active player (only) may invoke the magic word
  "xyzzy" to set their location to the Lounge, by posting intent to do
  so. "xyzzy" may not be used if the player has taken any action to
  change their location in the same turn. For the remainder of that turn,
  and for the full duration of the player's following turn, the player
  will be in a state of "chatting their life away". A player in that state
  may take no voluntary turn-dependent actions other than ending their
  turn. (Turn-dependent actions being those which can only be performed by
  the active player on their turn.) Whether or not one is in this
  "chatting" state is a part of the game state.
