Summary 0006070: MONS spec weirdness with zombified monsters
Description   * place:Foo spectre ignores monster holiness, producing spectres of undead monsters and plants.

  * place:Zot zombies seem to bring up solely draconians, with no dragons.

  * "base draconian zombie" itself produces a reliable crash:
    ASSERT(smc) in '' at line 1219 failed.

I have got the same crash as with base draconian zombie with "any simulacrum". I had assumed this was because there are no e.g. Ugly Thing simulacrums, but it may be something else.

A later realization: place:Zot zombies only produce draconians due to the limit in how place:Foo can only produce small zombies. Considering that large [skeleton/zombie/simulacrum] works fine in most branches anyway, this is a silly limit that could use expanded syntax for monspec and vault definition (though whether the default should work to save lines/space might be uncertain).

The crashes are fixed as of 324a815. Leaving this open for the other issues.

place:Zot zombie/skeleton seems to place dragons fine now (though it seems to also like moths of wrath a ton for no obvious reason).

The only non-MH_NATURAL place:Foo spectres I can get are spectral apises and spectral ghouls, which suggests to me that for some reason the check is being made for having a corpse instead of being the right holiness (which is funny since corpseless natural monsters ought to be able to be spectres).

The last part (non-natural spectres) is fixed in trunk (0.16-a0-1031-g5b9bb91), thanks!

It does still prevent spectral weight-zero monsters, because zombie_picker::veto still checks mons_class_can_leave_corpse.
