It's crap, yeah and AI doesn't use it but it should and it could be made 
better when we have path finding (and it wouldn't be a CPU killer then).

Now speaking about the AI, I think there should be two major attack modes, 
invasion and autoattack (preventive defence).  Idiotic junk like f_s_t_k 
and k_s_w should die instead.
