Or at least, reduce the frequency of those trivial, ridiculously-long 
(or even permanent) diseases, or cut their duration to 5-10 disease 
moves, or throw in some debilitating and/or dangerous diseases (for 
debilitating, try flu, maybe leprosy (cha-4? Pain in the shop...) or 
for dangerous, how about the occasional typhoid or bubonic plague?).  
Maybe even add some new diseases.  I'm sure I could come up with some 
good ones (real ones, rather than the whimsical stuff that seems to 
show up on needle traps most of the time, heh heh...).
