A bit of reflection, and I realized I should say the following:

    1.  Seth's game _does_ work as a econ-theory model of a
        reputation-based gift economy, and 

    2.  it's a better structural model than anything I know of in
        economic theory.

Thanks for posting it, Seth!  Please forgive an old academic his
critical reflexes.
