I think that would be a sweet idea to implement.  The only thing I can come
up with is does it check thier entire invetory or would they have a
'special' slot just fro food/water items?  (Casue if it checks their entire
inventory what happens when they put in in a bag within a bag within a bag
ect)  As to making it more realistic in gameplay I think it would.  We all
eat or drink and we all know we need food/water, but if we don't bother
them with the need to type an extra command ever couple fo minutes then why
do it?
        I think I'm going to look into a way for doing this for my MUD though :)
Thanx for the idea :)
