no bug infestation event?

I can't see the bug infestation event anywhere on the wiki, so i'll add it to the Events page for now, if you want to remove my addition that's fine.

Looking for the meaning behind the tag <mtbDays>.

The diseases def file states 'Note that diseases are handled specially, their chancePerDay are set in the BiomeDef'. The biomedef lists diseases with a tag <mtbDays> (similar to what you find in the storyteller def). One may guess this stands for 'mean time between days', meaning 'average number of days between incidents'. I went with that when making the diseases table. (If that interpretation is correct, then the note that refers to chancePerDay is simply misleading at best.) Can anyone confirm what mtbdays means?

If I understand the code correctly, it checks diseases 4 times a day, each with a 25%/mtbDays chance of infection.
