  Well, I did something similar as well, just messing around with the
can see in dark macros and such... however, depending of what your idea
of infravision is, you may not want it on all the time.  Just based on a
few of the novels I have read with Elves, Drow, Dwarves etc, seems that
they used it much like a spell or a skill, turning it on and off at
need.  So I guess that was my reasoning when I set it up the way that I
did :)
