I have seen a mud use the MOB_HUGE/ROOM_HUGE flags to limit some mobs
from going certain places. For example a 50 ft giant wouldn't be able 
to follow you into a room with a 10 ft ceiling. You could add a size
variable to the mob struct (ick) or make flags for small, medium, 
large, huge, etc. You could then have tunnels that allow a medium 
sized mob and tunnels that only allow small one. You could even check 
the players height-- over 6 ft? have to crawl through here... crawl 
of course takes twice as much move....
