0007736: Omitting STRICT_POPULATION_CAP from d_init.txt defaults it to 0
Most init/d_init settings with numeric values have valid ranges, such that setting a value too high or too low will restrict it to that range (e.g. POPULATION_CAP has a minimum of 7 and a maximum of 1000). Such options, if not set at all, will be given a value of 0, which may not make any sense.

The most notable instance of this is STRICT_POPULATION_CAP, which defaults to 0 when not specified (which has turned out to be the case with several incorrectly-prepared "starter packs", as noted in 0007684).

Ideally, most init/d_init settings should be pre-initialized to sane values in memory.
Additionally, d_init.txt should probably include the same warning present at the top of init.txt.
No tags attached.
