Here's a silly hacker idea :)

Make a hidden creature, say a pair of eyes, put it in the room to be snooped and
then snoop it. End of duration remove it.  This could be neat, especially if you
were doing a scrying spell, then people who noticed could stop your scrying. If
you want it for a god function I wonder if you could set nohassle....;)
I don't know if this would work, but it seems feasible. I always try to find
a way
to work around what's there, modifications usually end up causing nasty side
that usually show up when you have the most people you've ever had on your mud.
