-This release is about 'carts', which are land-based skimmers / small wagons.
  -carts help file
-Carts can be player crafted (more on this in the near future).
-Carts are the same as skimmers in that...
  -characters can sit and stand on them
  -items can be placed on them
  -when they move from room to room they bring the items/characters with them
-Carts are different from skimmers in that...
  -they save their location between reboots (as wagons do)
  -they require mounts be harnessed to them to move, with some values saved
    -attributes (str/agl/wis/end)
    -stats (mvs, hps, stun)
    -name/owner

-Things to be careful about...
  -Things on the cart are NOT saved between reboots, currently.
  -Things packed on harnessed mounts are NOT saved between reboots, currently.

-Harness now works for carts.
  -syntax: harness <mount> [to] <cart>
  -unharness help file
-Unharness now works for carts.
  -syntax: unharness <mount>
  -Must be pilot (first occupant) of cart.
  -harness help file

-Looking at room shows all mounts on a single line after cart.
-Looking at cart now shows its mounts (and name if looker is mount owner)
-Assessing a cart now shows how many yokes are used/unused, and mounts and
  their rested level.  Number of yokes limits maximum number of mounts.
-Carts are always displayed to room except when ridden
-Cannot mount something while standing/sitting/sleeping/resting on furniture.
-Cannot mount or hitch something that is harnessed to a cart.
-Cannot pack/unpack things that are already harnessed.
-Cannot harness creatures with inventory/packed items on them.
-Trying to use unhitch on harnessed creature, 'Did you mean unharness?'
-When trying to hitch something to an object, ask if they meant harness.
-Passengers are now seen to 'ride' ride in/out of room on cart.
-Pilot is now seed to 'drive' in/out of room on cart.

-Tripled how much mounts attached to carts can pull.
-Cannot harness hitched mounts (unless it is hitched to you, in which case the mount is unhitched automatically)
-Mounts leaving the room without the cart don't break carts anymore.
  (flee, summon, hands of wind, fear, etc...)
-Increased rate at which virtual characters buy items from shops
-Staggered out some resource greedy tasks the game performs rather than having them fire all at once creating lag spikes.
-Added some metrics to code execution to help track down future lag spikes.

-Fixed some bugs with how cart weight was calculated, should resolve issues of mounts being too weak to pull carts.
-Fixed bug in pack command that would generate incorrect messages if a character in the room shared a keyword
   with the item being packed onto a mount.
-Fixed a bug where, when crafting cures, equipped items could be destroyed as part of crafting.
-Fixed a bug where, when piloting a cart in/out of a wagon the mounts were not being moved with the cart.
-Pilot now takes two arguments
  -"rest" and "stand" which force the mounts to change position as indicated.
  -Assessing the cart will show "(resting)" after mounts that are resting.  Standing mounts do not have their position
     appended.
