Only players actually in clans can join clan wars.
Prevent stomp for mobs without legs, or who are flying.
Add 'look in container -acount' and 'look in container -ncount' for
auto-item-count or non-auto-item-count modes. This does not stack with
list switches. I will probably make -ac the default for noobs. Also
add 'autocount' option.
---- Jul 19, 12

Prevent players from bringing mobs into arenas.
Add kxwt triggers around potion brewing spam.
Locks and lockpicking have been changed. The pick intelligence part of
locks is now directly related to the level of the lock, so for all high
level locks, you'll need high int to pass the int check. This was a
conversion of all existing doors and objects, so there may need to be
tweaks to adjust this over the next few weeks.
Arena events will now pick their arena with extreme prejudice, closing
existing arenas if necessary to do the job.

WARNING - SOCKET STACK CHANGES - WARNING
I've been hunting down an obscure bug in the socket stack for about fifteen
years now, and I think I've finally got it squashed - however this code is
very complicated, and very ugly, and very dangerous. Please let me know if
you run into situations where the server stops processing your commands or
input, especially if you have to reconnect to clear it. Keep in mind that
some types of network lag also do this and try to avoid false reports
caused by lag if you can.
Note that the control C and 'abort' commands have also been affected.
They may not work exactly the same as they used to.
---- Jun 26, 12 
Minor noob message fixes.
Add an 'eqwear' command to alias to 'eqset wear'.

Improve the effectiveness of smokebombs.
Change slist to display (all spells and skills level 5 and lower) for a
given class, if the trainer can teach them and the player has at least
one level in that class, in addition to what was previously shown. In
short, if a noob with one mage level slists at Stiboli, he'll see the
mage spells and skills up to level 5, even if he can't learn all of them
---- Jun 17, 12 
Fix goofy display bug with identify and 'you can't use this yet' warning.
Improve credit purchase logging for weightless expansions.
Massive internal rework to how carried weight is handled for containers.
Please be on the lookout for weight bugs in regular containers, liquid
containers, and weightlesses. If everything goes well, there should be
no change to players except that some containers will now carry a few
pounds more than before.
Raise exp caps for mid levels to smooth out the decline in exp cap relative
to the number of classes you have to level. The point where the linear exp
cap kicks in is now also the microlevel point.
Increase lag on the manual 'save' command to discourage people from using
it, since the server automatically saves everyone as needed. There are
valid reasons to force a save, but they are rare - if you don't know why
forcing a save would be important, you shouldn't be doing it.
---- Jun 13, 12 
More minor dclient map updates.

Add 'kxwt_myname' on initial kxwt enable.
Add 'varset clear -f' to clear all of your currently set variables.
Add a 'catch up' mode for people who are grossly behind on fame. When
you have spent more fame than you have, you'll be able to level after
you run double the amount of fame you normally would need. If you start
at 250 but have spent 600, you'll need to increase your fame to 300
in order to level a full 25 fame level.

tweaking in the future.

Attempt to stop auctions before reboots.
Fix lag bug with massive group quest complete.
