We have this same system at HexOnyx in addition to the normal level 
system. It's nice to keep imm levels -- in order to have some kind of 
"rank" to things.

We've got it set up so that you can set an "allow" or a "deny" bit on a 
player.. so if you want to deny a god from using the freeze command, you 
could do that.. or allow a low level imm the load get the 
idea. There's a bitvector of commonly used imm commands (ones that would 
likely need to be allowed/denied to players), and an extra field in
the command struct to link the bits with the related imm command(s).

Simple .. and effective.
