I think this is a great idea, both for mobs and objects.  That way
a unique item can really be made 100% unique.

I think the way that Alex described this is a great way of doing it!

It would really add to the level of control possible, and allow for a
differentiation between simply rare items, and truely unique items (or mobs,
for that matter).  I remember playing on NCMUD, it had a shire, with Bilbo
and his One Ring... but everyone had one.  That's always struck me as

So, if someone's keeping track, I vote for this as a feature. :)  I don't
know how to program it myself (yet), but I'd love to be a tester for the
code, and I'll run it for sure!
