That would also open up space to play with how common food is, or how quickly the food clock runs down.

I do agree that having monsters that drain your food level is also worth exploring. Green Glutton Ghosts at minimum, Vampires too (gotta replenish that lost blood!), but possibly any monster/effect that drains XP could also make you hungrier.
A very reasonable request. Starvation should be only there when you dig through rock at 500turns/square.

Different races (troll,hobbit) would react differently to hunger.
