This doesn't really sound like something that's worth having an entire command dedicated to when you can just use the existing autopickup menu.

The only mutation that affects porridge is carnivore 3 preventing you from getting any nutrition from it at all, so I don't think most of the special-casing and weirdness you're talking about actually exists? Only Felids, Kobolds and Ghouls are affected.
