... but also, the storekeeper stocks better stuff once s/he knows I'm a good haggler.

I'm not sure if O has all the same stuff that S 1.0 had, though.
Even then, it is worth being stuck with the old shop interface and an option?

Almost certainly not - I've never found another player who enjoys haggling. Even Derakon (who appears to be my long-lost twin and have precisely the same views on almost everything Angband-related) doesn't enjoy haggling, IIRC.

But I don't see why retaining a haggling option would mean being stuck with an old store interface ... ?

It mostly because the store code is such a complicated mess that I'm not sure I will be able to update the interface and keep haggling.

Weird. Have you looked at V's store.c? It's quite clean and pretty much self-contained (other than obvious deps on object handling functions). Is the problem that the UI and gameplay are not cleanly separated? takkaria and others did a lot of work on that in 3.1.0, which might be why V's is cleaner.

Well, the problem is that O's store.c is quite complicated and there are a lot of differences compared to V.
