Mobprogs are no more or less standard than dg_scripts, unless I'm missing

Prior to working with scripts, I'd created an "mdelay" command for the purpose
you mention. Its syntax was "mdelay <time-in-seconds> <circlemud command>".
It worked with an event system that, in this case, would cause the mob that
the command to command_interpret(<circlemud_command>) after the time
passed. For use with mobprogs which had several commands, you had to use
mdelay for every command after the first mdelay if you wanted command order
to be preserved. This is because the mobprog command interface does not have
the ability to stop executing its command list and resume it later. (DG_Scripts
does, which is another reason it's much better suited for the job.)
