You're correct about it being faster, but I want people to be able to
wear 'light items' when in total darkness. I figure that if the item will
light up a room, then it is most likely giving off enough light to be
seen to be worn. That way someone won't be really screwed if their 'in
use' light item get destroyed in a dark room or some other nasty thing
like that.

The code for allowing them to wear something flagged ITEM_LIGHT_SOURCE
was smoother and smaller that way instead of using the AFF_LIGHT.

Thanks for the idea, though!
