[3.3] Non-permanent experience drain

In 3.2, items with DRAIN_EXP would drain experience permanently. In 3.3, the xp drain is non permanent. Bug or hidden feature?

Bug, I suspect. I'm not aware of this being a deliberate change - but I think we ought to re-examine DRAIN_EXP anyway, because it's only ever found on items where it really doesn't matter. I'm not aware of it having any effect on decision-making regarding item use.

We have Imp_HP and IMP_SP, those seem to be reasonable substitute.
