Although the central place for design discussion is ##crawl-dev on freenode, some may find it helpful to discuss requests and suggestions here first.

drop last picked up or unequipped item with D

See subject line, with the exception of weapon swapping via the ' command. This would reduce tedium from early game equipment churn.

Maybe make it "last picked up or unequipped or identified"?

How does this change the current behaviour?

Re: drop last picked up or unequipped item with D

Currently it's quite frequent for D to drop an unintuitive item. (Most of the tube or does work conveniently.)
For example I'll wield-id something, find it to be bad, try to drop it and drop some chunks instead.
It's an issue when I pick up an unidentified item but don't identify it immediately, for example because im trying to clear the floor first.

Currently, D drops the last item you picked up, which is not always the same thing as the last thing you picked up or unequipped (or whatever other things these guys are talking about).

Re: drop last picked up or unequipped item with D

Just now I noticed that when I found an identified improved armour component, I wanted to equip it and then immediately drop the thing it's replacing.

BTW, thanks to the devs for implementing "W," and "D" as they currently work, and enemies wearing identified stuff! It makes the game nicer :)
