Hmm. I'm a little concerned that this would make it impossible for the
monkey to ever drop a banana token. Also, there's some ambiguity with Rule
101: if the uplink holder moves the monkey into a room, and there's a
banana token in the room, did the uplink-holder "cause" the monkey to pick
up that token? Logically, I think it shouldn't affect the charge, but the
way the rule is stated, it's ambiguous.

So I'm withholding my vote for the time being.
