Switched immortals may care.

The warning exists in place of a crash since all mobiles currently share
one set of preferences to avoid said crash.  That's why wimpy, prompts, and
preferences don't save.  If they did, every single mobile would waste
memory storing preferences.  It could be implemented differently, but there
shouldn't be much of a reason to save preferences.  They aren't saved and
handled like a player after all.[1]

[1] Well, not yet anyway. Muwahaha.
    Or perhaps I should say...players aren't handled like mobs yet.
    A player is a special case of a mobile, after all. :)
