Right now I'm away from the "clean" DG Scripts source, and I don't know
off hand if this was added for pl6 or is a pre-pl7 snippet. The code below,
which comes from dg_scripts.c (after the #ifdef RACE/#endif block) will
let "%actor.fighting%" be used to determine if the character is engaged in

      else if (!str_cmp(field, "fighting"))
        if (FIGHTING(c))
          sprintf(str, "%c%ld", UID_CHAR, GET_ID(FIGHTING(c)));
        else *str = '\0';

This is certainly interesting and something I was unaware of. The reason
is wield is in different code than wear. In people's opinion, should objects
have a wield trigger, or should the wear trigger be used for wield as well?
If people tell me what they think, I'll do something for pl7.
