Interesting idea. This would certainly improve a complex and bug-prone
part of the game. But with the him losing all his 'peaceful'
functions, would the label "diplomat" really be appropriate anymore?
He'd be more like a one-man tactical nuke. How about, say, "assassin"
instead? =)

Oh, and BTW, who would do all that good ol' stealing of techs? Maybe
