The builder types `medit xxx' where xxx is the number of a new (UNUSED)
Before entering the editor, medit asks the builder for the level of the
The mob's other stats are calculated based on that level.
The builder can then tweak with the mob's other stats in OLC.
If the builder changes the level of the mob they are asked if they want
to recalculate the stats.
