I'm not sure which DG Events patch you are referring to, but the one I've
seen makes far fewer changes to the stock server then the Race patch.  The
big changes comes in transitioning the event routines in DG Scripts over to
DG Events.  And all that ends up is replacing two files, adding two more and
changing the syntax in about a dozen places throught the DG Script files.

I defiantly think there should be a patch that ties the two together for
those who would like both DG Scripts and DG Events.  After all, there is no
point in having two event routines when one would suffice. <G>

Of course, this still does not solve the problem that is not very much
event-based code floating around.  So far, I've only been able to find five
events: regeneration, fighting, zone reset, shutdown and an amusing little
sniffing event that comes with the DG Events' documentation.
