Maybe I should fix the maximum capacity of torches to 4000 and nuke this "combining" thing altogether.
This would make Ego torches suck really bad.

It wouldn't be too hard, but I think it might just be a bit pointless, and a little confusing -- no-one else does this. Perhaps a solution would be wand/rod-style stacking of lanterns+torches. That makes combining (the horrible idea that it is) removable, but replaces it with a nastier hack. Hmm.
I think I pitched this to Leon in Sangband, and I think he came back correctly to shoot it down. I'd vote to just have all torches show up with full fuel and call it a day. It works pretty well in Iron, right?
