   Many have impped this as a "bury/dig" or "hide/search" system. Never 
seen their code, but I'd say making a HIDDEN flag would work. One of the 
"look" functions, that shows objects would first check for that flag. 
Same as INVIS, but see invis wouldn't show it. Then a search or dig 
command would get a percent chance of removing the flag...
  I have impped this with a new door state, and it works well!
