The following proposal has been agreed unanimously (explicitly by
jwalrus, implicitly by everyone else) and will go into effect adding
Rule 160 in one hour from the timestamp of this message. (I believe
that the clause attempting to remove an already-removed rule is just
inoperative, not invalidating.)

robotfindsflightcapablekitten [Psmith]

  Remove Rule 156.

  The active player may, during his or her turn, take at most two
  of the following actions (either two different or the same action
  * Cause the kitten to move to a room randomly selected from the list
    of rooms connected to the kitten's location.
  * Cause the kitten to fly to a room randomly selected from the
    list of rooms to which it would be possible for the kitten
    to fly, excluding its current location.
  * Optionally move the robot, and cause the robot to examine an
    entity randomly selected from the list of entities which are
    not the robot and whose locations are equal to the robot's
    (possibly new) location. If the examination is not completed,
    no movement will occur.
