Summary 0008091: Monsters can polymorph into nonbase demonspawn
Description Whether they should polymorph into race monsters at all is questionable, but it is clearly a bug that they can polymorph into e.g. infernal demonspawn when they cannot polymorph into purple draconians.

Things can polymorph into purple draconians, but outside of Zot it has a 90% chance of failing (which usually means falling back to something else).

The intent behind that check is "// [ds] Non-base draconians are much more trouble than their HD suggests". Is that likewise the case for non-base (but classless) demonspawn?

Could do something similar, allowing non-base DS polymorphs in Pan but not elsewhere, maybe or maybe not with a 1/10 chance of overriding. Or could change the special-casing for draconians.

Removed that weird Zot check, maybe coloured draconians should just be M_NO_POLY_TO though?
