Summary 0007653: Rename dragon to fire dragon
Description DRAGON now genus-only.

Brief discussion history in 4d5c11a304968c3635d8b60075a0ab9b39d71d43.

Summary of brainstorm session in August (the good arguments mostly by neil):

"Dragon" means "fire-breathing dragon" in European mythology because the other kinds never existed. In the world of Crawl however, there are many kinds of dragons - so it seems that people would have given the fire-breathing one a more distinctive name.
Red draconians and fire drakes also both get a fire-y qualifier.

Producing "fire dragon armour" from "fire dragon hide" also means less player confusion if a "fire dragon" dropped that hide.

The follow-up tries to make fire-breath messages less awkward (breathing flames instead of fire) similar to what's done with ice dragons breathing frost.

Note that this patch is about four months old, then was updated to include all vault `dragon`s in late August, and has now been rebased on current master. While there hadn't been many conflicts for both updates, i am kind of limited to only testing basic stuff.

I'd prefer to actually discuss the attached patches here. If you're interested in making mantis a place I like better, I'm happy to also discuss that - elsewhere.

Rebased against current master (probably the last time i did that, barring any actual feedback).

Applied in trunk (0.14-a0-766-g558a4af and 0.14-a0-767-gaf97a73), thanks! I also renamed the entry in dat/descript/monsters.txt.

Cool, thank you!
The monster entry was part of some other commit in my local genus branch - sorry about that.
