Wouldn't people be happier with an "on_room_enter" event trigger?  I know
mobile aggression would prefer that anyway.  Probably then go for
"on_room_exit" to be consistent.  Maybe "on_item_get", "on_item_drop",
"on_item_give", etc. Shouldn't take up much extra RAM since it'd be stored
in the prototypes and not each object/mobile.  Calling convention would be
SPECIAL() as usual, likely.

A late reply, but check the date and you'll understand.
