Why would you suggest not doing it?

The thing is in stock circle, and while it's great for people who
know how to use it, in my opinion players are normally the expected

To sync 'where' with this change, it would only require a small change to
perform_immort_where() to search descriptors before mobs as I did in

Some of you may have noticed that I don't check the descriptors for
switched imms.  That's actually intentional.  Since imms often use switch
to run quests, an imm switched into a guard will almost always be found
first if you 'tell guard'.
