Command undead: excessive verbosity from followers

Bug / change request / issue:

Commanded undead will mutter "Very well." very frequently when given commands.

This is un-necessary networking traffic and spams text to all nearby players.  it's a cute thing to see the first time, but otherwise appears to serve no purpose.

Expected result:  server optimizes away (deletes code) associated with sending this message.

(haven't checked whether this is applicable to dryad allure).

    This is still very much true today.  This message only serves to increase server load as far as I can tell.  edit: tested commanded undead doesn't make an ack/nak sound, perhaps that's why...

    In EC, you can at least drop the "Very well." spam via:

    textparsing.lua,TextParsing.IgnoreTextManager()

    put this near the top
    	if( SystemData.TextID == 502002 ) then -- "Very well."
    SystemData.Text = L""
    return true
    end
