Oops... I could have sworn spec_procs were called after all the mob flag
actions... sorry about that.

Hm... Seeing as you've seen a lot of the code, which do you think would
really make the mud lag more; a large number of players playing, or a
100-150 spec_procs being called every PULSE_MOBILE seconds... Anyhow,
having a large number of players would multiply some of the lag made by
spec_procs. In either case, optimizing on behalf of both doesn't do much
when actual netlag is involved :P.
