69 - Magic Broom (Hallow's End temporary mount)

During the Hallow's End world event, players can obtain the Magic Broom mount. It only works during Hallow's End, so it isn't learned like a permanent mount, but must be used as an item. I saw one ticket where you'd declined to add support for Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest, but unlike that item, this one doesn't have a cooldown, doesn't need to be equipped, doesn't have any other special requirements, and -- most importantly -- is instant-cast, giving it a significant advantage over other mounts to the point where there is absolutely no reason to use any other mount during Hallow's End.

I hacked my copy of Squire2 to support it by adding a quick check at the top of the GetActionForMount function:

function addon:GetActionForMount(mountType, isMoving, inCombat, isOutdoors)
    if IsUsableItem(37011) then
        return 'item', 37011

There may be a better place for that, but it works from there.
