I'll bite and be the one to ask it. Does anyone actually like Angband being 100-level long, or at this point it's only a "it's always been like that" and no one would mind if it got, say, 20 levels...

I think "RElec plays a role in the learning experience, as it teaches how resistances work and what the base 4 (the most common ones) are. Also, it makes "RAcid harder to id-by-exclusion. Maybe one...

Difficult choice, but probably at low/mid depths I'd go for the highest branded damage. I can pick my fights and farm experience on non-cold-resistant monsters.

Is it possible to give the keypad number keys a different meaning from the above-the-letters number keys? I imagine that the answer is yes for most frontends, but maybe not for all of them.
