Default Survival server death messages

Hi,
I added the Obituaries plugin to the survival server and did some basic testing.
It shows a message when you die to everyone. I thought this was cool enough to warrant an immediate implementation
The current death messages are:
minecraft@tognew:~/mc2_survival/bin$ cat obituary_messages.txt
lava:<cc><player> fell into lava.
water:<cc><player> has drowned.
suffocate:<cc><player> has suffocated.
creeper:<cc><player> was blown up by a creeper.
entity:<cc><player> was killed by <killer>.
player:<cc><killer> killed <player> with a<n> <item>.
ranged:<cc><killer> killed <player> with a<n> <item> at a range of <distance>m.
skeleton:<cc>Skeleton killed <player> at a range of <distance>m.
fall:<cc><player> fell to his death.
fire_tick:<cc><player> burned to death.
fire:<cc><player> fell into a fire.
cactus:<cc><player> died to a cactus. Come on, really?
explosion:<cc><player> died to an explosion.
suicide:<cc><player> killed himself.minecraft@tognew:~/mc2_survival/bin$

spiders seem to generate the same messages as zombies, but thats probably a minecraft misfeature.
we can take some suggestions for messages and customise it if required.

I'd say that it's not entirely impossible to die to a cactus, I have plenty of traps full of the green devils and I usually try them myself to make sure they work

Well that explains why 'hug a cactus day' was canceled early...

I'm thinking about the message "Player fell to a clumsy and painful death". Well clumsy yes, but painful? I can think of much more painful ways to die than being splattered on a rock

For the new arena (Thanks Sor for the border fix!) when one player dies to another:

Player X in a display of (insert derogatory comment here), fell to Player Y ina dazzling display of (insert ego booster here)!

That comes from Team Fortress 2 - when you fall off something that's the death message you get... so it's like an inside joke sort of thing
