Got an idea: how about if things are changed so that when a mob loots
stuff from your corpse, it becomes owned by you so that if the mob is
killed and then its corpse decays quickly, your items don't go poof?
I got killed by the vampy today, someone went in and finished him for me,
I went in and started re-equipping and after not even 2 minutes the
vampy's corpse went bye-bye along with a few rather choice items he'd
looted from me. It seems that if we don't want to have the code too
separated for pkill and mobkill, we should make the mobs obey the same
rules in regard to looting as the players do :)

Mobs do obey the rules that players do: if the corpse poofs they
follow ownership rules on the object from the corpse. However,
the objects that poofed from the corpse wouldn't have been owned.
However, with this latest code update, they are owned, so you
shouldn't have the same problem unless you don't pick up the objects
before the ownership wears out in 2 RL days.
