Optional wilderness as birth option

Could wilderness be possible as a birth option, similar to "no stairs" and "no selling"?

Have it disabled by default, but allow it to be enabled for anyone who would want to have wilderness in angband.

Play FAAngband

Actually, I'm really hoping that one day Nick will be able to upgrade FAAngband with the wonderful things he's done for Vanilla. My favorite Variant ... after Rocketband, of course.

Other *bands with wildernesses: Poschengband, ToME2/Furyband, I think Zangband

ZAngband was one of the first variants to have a wilderness, in fact. I think it, Kangband, and Cthangband were the leaders on that front.

Nick will become famous soon enough
I would certainly like to enable the possibility of a wilderness in the Vanilla codebase, and I wouldn't rule out the possibility of having wilderness in V as a birth option. That said, there a number of other things higher on the priority list

And when it is playable with OS, then I'll go for it.

What is OS, and why do you keep referring to it?

Been wondering the same thing. Mac OS? OS/2? OS stands for Operating System.
