In online multiplayer games this is considered a feature, and is a commonly
occuring strategy. I briefly looked over PR#2581 and I if you provide an
updated version for trunk (i.e. 2.2) that would be fine. Just make it a ruleset
option, for example like killstack. It would substantially change the game
mechanics so I would make the default value off (i.e. preserve the exiting
behavior). You can raise the idea in the forums and perhaps get some
input about how a ruleset using your setting could be better balanced.
