Another feature request..."Nothing happens."

It seem to be popular these days, so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon.

How about an in game message when your rod/staff/wand/scroll/potion seems to do nothing. Maybe a message like "Nothing seems to happen.", or "You don't detect any traps/object/doors or stairs.".

Undoubtedly some will find yet another message annoying, so, perhaps, make it optional.

Time and time again I find myself checking my inventory after using an un-ID'd 'do-nothing' rod/staff/wand just to make sure that it is 'tried' and I didn't accidentally hit the wrong key.

This, too, has already been implemented all will be in the next version.
