Remove outdated reference from the manual
The manual description of detect item status references an extremely old version of ADOM

In the skills section of the manual, the description for detect item status includes the phrase:

"This skill is comparable to the automatic ability of priests (in versions of ADOM prior to 0.9.0) to discover the status of an item."

At this point, I think it's a safe bet that the number of people who played those old versions of ADOM but haven't played since is vanishingy small. As such, I suspect that this reference is now more likely to confuse than to enlighten, so it probably ought to be eliminated.

I don't really see how it could cause confusion (obviously it refers to a past version that isn't the one being played), and it provides a tiny bit of ADOM history knowledge which is kind of nice to have.

I agree with rho. It's stupid to hang on to ancient references like this.

I agree with rho too, the phrase looks misleading.
