Questions about default auto destroy settings [Frog]

So there've been a few things that puzzle me in the default autodestroy file (pickpref).

Have two questions about this:
Code:
~mushroom of hallucination

?:[EQU $RACE Snotling Doppelganger]
~mushroom
?:1
  1. Why would you ever not want to auto destroy a mushroom of Hallucination? When are they ever useful?
  2. What is special about mushrooms for snotlings and doppelgangers? (I am playing my first ever doppelganger)

Snotlings get special bonuses from eating a mushroom (any mushroom): in addition to the mushroom's normal effects, it will temporarily make the Snotling hasted, stone-skinned, heroic and gigantic. Doppelgangers can assume the form of a Snotling, and receive the same bonuses Snotlings do if they eat a mushroom in Snotling form. Doppelgangers and Snotlings are banned from all shroomeries so they don't have access to a cheap and reliable mushroom supply.

Mushrooms of hallucination have some niche uses. In particular, if they hallucinate you they also set your mana to zero, which can be an advantage if you plan to fight somebody who heals from your mana. But mostly they're there so people can eat them

I found that particular autodestroyer line useful for being so annoying that it forced me to learn how to edit the autodestroyer.

Iron Spike#@vz

For reforging. Ego lamps of darkness are rare, and even if found they give nothing to the player besides the darkness, so ninjas would much like to have an artifact dark lamp; reforging doesn't guarantee one, of course, but with enough attempts you will likely get lucky eventually.
