Why would you need to have another bitvector, why not just use the one
that is already there ITEM_WIELD
and in the function do_wield check to see if a weapon is already wielded
if so then check to see if char has
a free hand -ie. not using a shield or holding something else-, also
check to see if char has dual wield
skill, and check to see if second weapons weight is less than the first
one, if so then wield it, if
not then send a message telling them why.
you will have to add a new position though such as secondary.

Anyhow that is how I would do it.

Hope this helps
