Customs of the spaceways... or... arr, we killed him to conserve oxygen!

A friend posted something friendlocked that included a reference to one of the more fascinating series of trials of the 19th century, which established that an ancient "custom of the sea" did not justify murder.

Now I think that when I eventually get to the space travel section there really needs to be a section on "Customs of the spaceways," possibly including the meat of this case, and maybe, in Churchill's words, "rum, sodomy, and the lash." In a clean-cut American influenced sort of way, of course...

Any suggestions?
