The code is *not* supposed to work.  You have to do this in two steps; one
wizardly verb changes `player' and then calls another (or the same!) wizardly
verb to do the set_task_perms() and call the intended target.  We have a couple
of places in Jupiter where we do this and in both cases we managed to have the
same verb do double duty.  Think of it as a challenge... :-)
