@wobbly, re rogues

Throwing knives maybe? It would make thematic sense.

Flaming Pinecones thrown down on assorted Orcs and Wargs. Noses were burned if I recall...

Yes, it would. I'm not sure I'll get around to throwing for 4.2.

Bilbo, the "rogue" of "The Hobbit" was a natural stone thrower, apparently, managing to kill monstrous Mirkwood spiders just by whipping stones at them with nothing more than his bare hands.

I doubt you'll find the same luck if you make a hobbit rogue and have him throw stone ammunition at Mirkwood spiders, though.

For precisely this reason I considered giving pebbles the THROWING flag when I introduced throwing weapons. For some reason I then thought it was a bad idea; I might re-examine that.
