I've been wondering the same thing, and I'm not sure of my opinion yet.  It 
might be
nice to have the server load the rulesets first, then let the person running 
the game
override the rulesets with additional server commands.

Right; that's why I posted this message before writing any code.

I did send in a couple of patches that gave better (IMO) financial info in the 
client display.  I've found them so useful during play that I re-apply them 
time I update the CVS version that I use when playing.  It would be nice if 
else could give them a try and see whether they agree.
