You could create a seperate linked list for these mounts and just run
through the short list after/before running through the player list
when you pass through the section that updates the players points.  This
way you don't run through the huge list of *all* mobs to find the IS_MOUNT
flags.  You'd have to add a pointer to the mobs to put them in a new list
or use C++ and put them in a list container (sorry, can't help it ;).
