[Nomic02] Proposal: Time bomb stuff

Two proposals. The first, for one rule removal and one token removal:

  On The Grounds of Taste [Psmith]

  Remove Rule 73.
  Remove the IRAQ BOMB.

And, to ensure a supply of time bombs should they be needed, a proposal for
two new rules:

  Anarcho-Capitalist Pieman [Psmith]

  A. If the active player's location is the same as the location of the
  pieman, the player may, as an action, elect to 'buy a bomb'. When
  this occurs, the player's brownie points tally shall decrease by ten
  points and a new time bomb token shall be created with the name "a
  bomb", location equal to the active player, and delay equal to a
  specified number of days between 1 and 7 (if no number is specified,
  this defaults to 1). The pieman's location shall then change to a room
  chosen by random selection by the active player from the set of rooms
  which are connected to the pieman's current location but not equal to
  it; the bomb is not deemed to have been bought until this is done.

  B. Immediately after a bomb has been bought from the pieman, the
  active player may choose to rename that bomb to any string beginning
  with "a " or "an " and ending with " bomb", other than "a pie bomb".
  If the active player does not rename a bomb before his or her turn
  ends, he or she forfeits the right to do so.
