Proposal: acquirement uses max depth

See title: I suggest that ?acquirement should generate items based on the max depth rather than the current depth.

This fixes a huge noob trap in the game. I don't see any way to abuse this change (if I can reach a certain depth, I can also go back there and read a scroll), and even if there were one the impact would be minimal: how many scrolls of acquirement do you find in a game?

How about this: reading the scroll teleports the highest valued item on the level to your square. The description should state how it works, obviously.

Honestly, I would hate that.

I'd want to horde it until I get a good level feeling, and I can't afford the bag space. Right now, I pretty just read them on the ground where I find them and hope for the best.

I used to hoard every Acquirement scroll in order to read them on the "8s", but finally gave that up.
