	Hmm perhaps an adjustment to the movement routines.. When a 
player moves in a particular direction, have it cycle through all the 
mobs in the destination room and check if they are aggressive... if so, 
have them do their aggressive stuff.. :)  
	If you want to lower the time delay instead of making it 
instantaneous, I think you'd have to shorten the mob_act pulse length 
which I think is 10 seconds ... but this would probably slow down your 
MUD somewhat.
