Well, currently all the db.c routines take a 'FILE '.  They'll all have to
be changed to accept a 'char *' instead.

Not that hard, just a bit of work. (Already have a somewhat finished patch
that does exactly this conversion.)

struct char_data *assassin;
parse_mobile("#-1\nAssassin\nassassin\nAn assassin stands here awaiting his
target.~\nYou can't see anything.~\nanopqr dkp 1000 E\n26 1 -1 5d10+550
4d6+3\n10000 155000\n8 8 2\nE\n", &assassin);

Sort of a pain, and you could create it manually, but it'll have uses.
