I think this is a nice and easy coding exercise...try the following

> AutoLoot

Browse through the contents of the corpse, and add the stuff to the
players inventory. Check the code of 'get all' to get some inspiriation.

> AutoAssist

With every pulse of violence check all members of a group; if a group
member is fighting let them assist. Check the code of 'assist' to
get inspiration.

> Autosplit (automatically break up taken gold between the group)

Get the gold of the mob, and devide it by the amount of people in
the group. Do the same operation as modulo, and give that result
to the one who killed the mob.

Look through the patches, and try to get their idea. Then try to
'handpatch' your source.

This is a good exercise, and if you take your MUD somewhat serious,
sooner or later you need to add code by yourself anyways. Code as
in own code :)
