Should this be limited to rooms in your zone?

If it's going to cost 0 movement points to move while flying, I think it ought
to have a rather high minimum cost, so that it burns quite a few points.  This
is a pretty powerful spell as is (fast typists will never be chased down).

Need to be outdoors?

I think this was set up because the Diku spells reference arrays to determine
how much damage the spell does... the originial authors didn't fill in the
array locations below the spell level (they set them all to 0), so it should
be easy to go through and fix... (unless Jeremy's modified that also)

Please, no level * <die roll>... they are just too powerful.
