Summary 0006387: Change the default setting of show_inventory_weights to true
Description Setting this to true by default greatly helps inventory management, and the 'bug' mentioned by options_guide.txt no longer exists. It is much easier to decide what to drop while burdened if you don't have to inspect an item to see how much it weighs.

This patch modifies init.txt,, and options_guide.txt. Phrasing changes are welcome for the description of show_inventory_weights. I noticed most options in options_guide state what happens if you modify the default value, so I stuck with that.

I think it would be better to have a smart default behaviour instead of just on. Show it only if encumbrance > 90%. In pickup menu, show it if selection would put you over 90%. For dropping, only show it when encumbered.
Also in tiles, it disables line wrapping which cut off long item names so forcing the default on has a real cost (would be good to fix this anyway).

I would hate the extra complexity and confusion. You want to know what's dragging you down BEFORE you need to immediately drop something.
