        Funny, the snippet itself should be nothing more complex than
adding an array of data, and a function, and then inserting that function
call before the make_corpse code.

        And no, that snippet is just a funny cosmetic fix.

        Actually, I was curious about this; do you find it to be working
well?  I've wanted to put, if not limb damage specifically, bleeding in,
but I find it hard to strike a balance between 'slightly annoying' and
'far far too painfully realistic and damaging'.  Of course, it doesn't
make it any better that our healing/regn system is a constant sort, _x_
points back every 2-3 seconds, and altering this rate causes a nearly
imperceptible change, or a fiercely dramatic one.
