Cloner "clone" topic checks are completely ignored.
Created by: DarkDibblez
Description of issue
The cloner console will run pod.growclone(C) regardless of any checks it does beforehand.
Difference between expected and actual behavior
Expected: Cloner console realizes it can't clone this person due to whatever reason (not enough biomass, clone pod already occupied, etc) and shows a descriptive error message indicating the issue(s).
Actual: Cloner console tries to fire the cloning code regardless, and only if THAT fails it shows a generic error message that explains nothing.
Steps to reproduce
Specific information for locating
code\modules\medical\computer\cloning.dm lines 327-367.
The cloner console does a bunch of checks before calling the pod.growclone function and it looks like it's supposed to break on these issues. It completely ignores the result of the checks and calls growclone anyway, which in turn overwrites the temp var that held the original error code.
