Thats another good one. *cackle*. I'd actually already planned on some
undead being able to do this (and have it happen as a side effect of the
presence of some) as a general thing - as well as a great army of undead
in one place, as a specific theme element. Just I wasn't going to keep
corpses beyond their rot time (not over reboots/crashes). I'm
reconsidering now.
