Has no one thought of a Barrels o' Fun megawad before?

A megawad that strictly only uses barrels to kill monsters would be an interesting if not challenging to make. With creative thing placement, barrels can pretty much kill almost anything with the exception of Cyberdemons & Spiderdemons because of their high HP.
The reason why Cyberdemons and Spiderdemons can't be killed by barrels is because they're hardcoded to be completely immune to splash damage.
Ghost monsters, on the other hand, can only be killed by certain few things, including barrels and NOT including most of the player's weapons, so they might go perfectly with your idea.
