shrug, i disagree wich reply-to-mob fer diff reasons, IMO it's no big 
deal to add the code, and replying to mobs almost never occurs, but the 
concept of telling to a mob in the first place is too easily exploited. 

> tell fido u there dude?
You tell a fido, 'u there dude?'.
' da fido repoped, let's go kick his ass.

this dont make sense. neither do tell-pc tells, but thats another topic...
