Towards an eco-friendly 3.1

Well I think it's pretty clear by now that there's an elephant in the room conjured by the newly released Vanilla 3.1 that nobody really wants to talk about. Uncomfortable though it may be, it needs to be addressed now rather than later, before further damage is done.

I'm referring, of course, to the fact that torches are now generated with a default charge equal to their maximum capacity.

We have all, doubtless, noticed that when a torch dims down to a 1-radius square of light, combining it with another torch fully refuels it, wasting thousands of turns of torch-wood, and emptying the forests surrounding Angband Town of their natural sylvan splendor and contributing the general diminution of species. This is an issue that affects us all, and I think we can agree that we should do what we can to hand over a healthy planetary environment intact to our children and our children's children.
