While Helpless

NameWhile Helpless v1.0
AuthorPasi Kallinen
ForNetHack 3.4.3
DescriptionAdds different messages to death reason, if you die while busy doing something else.
 Normally when you die and are in the middle of a multiturn [in]action, you get "while helpless" appended to the death reason. This patch adds different reasons depending on why you're helpless, for example "while disrobing" or "while sleeping off a magical draught".

Does not affect saves or bones.

According to the combined patch here the FIXME may be remplaced by "opening a container"[Quote]

An immensely useful patch, and one that I was about to write for myself, had I not thought to search for it first.
I wonder how much this would increase the number of unique deaths...[Quote]

Looks like a darn good idea. I'd be suprised if some of those come up often (while jumping?), but it'd be nice to know.

One issue: pickup.c, line 2101 has, "opening FIXME!" which doesn't seem ideal.[Quote]
