Can anybody shed some light on it?
This is an idea of Eddie Grove's. The basic idea is that it removes the collecting of gear just to sell, and gets away from "Angband:Game of Shopping". You can't just ban selling and do nothing else, because then you don't have enough money to buy consumables; Eddie's solution is to increase gold drops.

I actually have a new idea on this, but I'll post it in a separate thread.
