I don't know about that.  Perhaps give each item from the mob's
corpse a timer so it will expire a little after the corpse does;
but don't do it right as the corpse rots.  Newbies often don't
realize the ability to "get" from a corpse until a bit after
they've explored.  Remember the first time you did a "get all
corpse"?  It seemed like a strange concept to be getting objects
FROM a corpse as if it were a container.
