The way I approached this was to add a check in the mob save routine to 
see if the mob has any E-specific changes.  Unless you've added E-spec 
keywords, all you need to check is whether barehand attack type is 0 (or 
1, can't remember), and check str, dex, wis, etc, to see if they're all 11.  

If any of those values aren't the same as the defaults (the ones assigned 
to simple mobs), the mob is an E type.  Then you'll have to check each 
value individually to see which ones you need to save in the file.
