As far as mobprograms go, yeah they are nice, and yes it's very very
convienent to make mobs do nifty things, but as far as use... it's a bitch
on the system running and interpreting the mobprograms, and uses a lot of
memory (well not a LOT, but still every byte counts). If you know anything
about coding you can do mob programs with spec mobs. One trillion times
faster and usuaslly a bit more stable.

And yeah, I had mobprograms installed, it was nice, but for memory/cpu time
reasons, I removed it and just use spec_procs now.
