I'll be doing that, but I found out from my other admins that nobody is
actually using that bug.  The actual bug was dropping link and using
someone else to kill the linkdead character.  Its a total PK mud, so it
was happening quite frequently - we had people duplicating our most
powerful MISSION (quest) items, then handing them out like candy... like
the jetpack that lets you fly in GRAVITY rooms (really fun to see people
fall :-), and the spacesuit-flagged items for existing in a vacuum...
