Make allied Royal Jelly summons allied as well.

So I just found out that if one phantom mirrors The Royal Jelly that those copies in turn upon damage will shudder and spit out jellies. It turns out though that those summons are unfriendly and will not vanish upon death of either mirrored or original royal jelly. This seems inconsistent with other allies summons who are friendly.

Pro: enhance consistency of item use, less special casing.
Pro: Awesome epic battles of armies upon armies of slimes.

Con: might make TRJ/slime end fight too easy.

Friendly TRJs don't create spawns at all, are you sure you weren't just seeing the spawns from the original?

Re: Make allied Royal Jelly summons allied as well.

I actually checked since it seemed really strange but did not copy. It was this game http://crawl.develz.org/morgues/git/Sva ... 173156.txt I cloned TRJ twice. After original Jelly died by immolation-storm walls got transparent etc I had messages from two royal jellies spitting out more royal jellies. If this is not intended, I will report a bug.

Reported and fixed. Looks like the issue was that the allied TRJ got turned hostile by ?immolation. https://crawl.develz.org/mantis/view.php?id=9705
