Fences' profit

Looking through fence.c, what it looks like is that the fence's profit (the bit that they will keep regardless of your skills) works more or less like a progressive income tax, and they take:

• 0% of the first $.50 • 5% of the next$.50
• 10% of the next $1 • 15% of the next$2
• 20% of the next $4 • 25% of the next$8
• 30% of the next $16 • 35% of the next$32
• 40% of the rest (that is, 40% of everything over \$64)

Anyone want to confirm this? Think it's worth putting in the article?

Not sure how easy this would be to test. I also believe the fencing system has received some tweaks since the dist mudlib so this may be out of date. Rehevkor 17:11, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
