Thanks for the transcript.  I think my favorite part is this:

Quote
Toady: I guess the one issue is - right now, I might change this, having just thought of it - if everyone in your fortress is a werewolf then during that full moon you'll register as having no living dwarves because they're all against you, crazed at that time, as if they were berserk ...

Capntastic:   Then you'd lose?

Toady: ... and then you'd lose. So I just need to put in a little thing that says they still count as alive if they're just temporarily transformed ... Let me write that in my little file ... 'Temporary transformations should not count against dwarf total for losing the game', there we go. Now that won't be a problem and people will be able to have their full werewolf fortresses.

I know it's not what he means, but it totally sounds like all Toady needs to do to add a feature is write it down in a "features.dat" file or something.  It would explain how he can just say things like, "Yeah, it's time to add a Z coord now" and it just happens.

I got bad news: Dreams sometimes come true.

My first thought when seeing that was "It looks like the Cookie Monster took some LSD and looked in a mirror"

Is that real?
