Hmmm. Prehaps PKing should set the premadeath flag for the killer (with
some fairly involved process for getting it turned back on again). And
maybe there should be a few extra monsters that seek out pkillers as
obviously aren't getting enough fun out of the mud...

Actually, given my 'equal right for NPCs stance', this should probably
apply to most peaceful mobs as well.
