Agree. If you (an immortal with load power) are in the middle of a
room filled with mortals, then there is a very high chance that
either a stupid player (with no clue what so ever) or a player who just
like to make trouble, will pick it up, if loaded to the room.

If an immortal think it's a hassle to type give <name> after each load,
then they coul dget load recoded to do this: load obj <obj-name> <char
name>  .. So it will load the object and give it directly to whoever
is <char-name> ...
