I inadvertantly sent this to Seth I. Rich when i meant to place it here.... Sorry.

In that case, how about something like:
which calls the verb but bypasses the state of the x perm. ? An advantage of doing it this way is that any verb you called will not in turn have the ability to call -x verbs unless they too call a force() (or whatever).

I feel fairly strongly about this. The behavior of "what happens when I call obj:verb(args)?" is the same for all users (although they may of course get different results). I don't think that .wizard==1 should change this; I think my wizardly commands should do the same thing as everyone else.
