This is a single-line change that allows non-standard transactions to get into the transaction memory pool (and, therefore, relayed and written into blocks) on -testnet.

Satoshi suggested this to me in an email a few weeks ago, and I agree it is a good idea-- we should encourage people to experiment on -testnet with new features, or they will figure out less efficient ways of wedging what they want to do into the existing standard transaction types.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?
Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

What types of non-standard transactions are currently in use and/or in the thought experiment phase? I'll start a wiki page for non-standard transactions.

Could we get nLockTime re-enabled on the testnet as well? And maybe the currently deactivated opcodes?
