  What exactly do you mean?  I will admit it, I'm a code newbie sometimes,
  abut as long as I understand what someone is getting at I can figure out
  what to do... could you send me a bit more of a detailed explanation on
  this one?

Yeah, that was very unclear.  Sorry.  Basically, an engraved item belongs
only to the person who engraved it.  However, engraved containers as i 
have them right now do not disallow others from taking stuff from the 
containers, though engraved eq can only be worn/wielded by the engraver.
Thus, the corpse looting could just be tagged as engraved to the person 
who died, and a generic "prevention from getting things out of an engraved
container unless it belongs to you" will handle both corpse looting _and_
engraved containers in general.
