It could be worth it if the human-readable savefiles were also less prone to being broken by updates to the game. (Not that human-readable code would be the only way to achieve that; but it might be...

The Unicorn of Order's aura is holy fire, not regular fire. The "*burned*" message instead of just "burned" is a bit odd though, because it implies extra damage from evil alignment and you aren't...

That's one of FrogComposband's secret easter eggs. You are not the first player to discover it, but I do think you are the first to discover it without looking in the code :)
