Nice idea.  The disposing of the corpse is something that bothers
me.  In most of the muds I've played, corpses were incredibly easy
to dispose of.  I would like to make this activity much more 
difficult (and with any luck a good deal more disgusting). :)
Anybody have any thoughts on smelly corpses, bones and other
nasty stuff?

Just think if Dahmer or Gacy had the 'sac corpse' command available 
to them.  Methinks they might still be running around. Yikes!
