1) I agree whole-heartedly. I'm quite enthused about Monty Python
Fluxx, so I quite liked getting the chance to see these.

2) doing so would sever some connections. "Rule six: there is no rule
six" is a direct Python quote (from a list of rules, numbered one
through seven), and rule five being Draw 3 interfaces well with 1,2,5.

3) I was going to suggest that 2nd one myself, but you beat me to it.
The numerals used in the various effects should be left as-is, though.
( "Five: Draw 3 cards." )

4) Those limits are in constant effect while it is not your turn. So
no, you must obey them as always.
