For testing we have --maintainer-mode (and Ctrl-m or something like
that in the game), allows to right-click to jump directly to the
clicked node. I think providing a run-on-double click isn't the worst
idea either, but a bit slowness in the worldmap is indented behaviour
and not going to change all that much.

Yep, the worldmap is kind of a mix of Super Mario's Worldmap and
Monkey Island controlls (all current adventures provide a run feature
so pingus should have one too).

Its all somewhere on my imaginary and huge 'wanna have features' list.

PS: If nobody stops me I'll add scripting support (Lua or Guile) to
Pingus one day, it just allows so much more freedom then plain old
static XML maps.
