After reading this I thought it might be usefull as well and did up a quick
command for it... I'll include it here if anyone wants to use it or base
their own implementation off it... its pretty simple...

  struct char_data *victim;
  char arg2[MAX_INPUT_LENGTH];
  int aff;
  This next madness is because search_block() forces lower on the
  first arg, but does nothing to the list it searches to match it
  char *aff_names[] =
{ "blind", "invis", "det-align", "det-invis", "det-magic", "sense-life",
  "watwalk", "sanct", "group", "curse", "infra", "poison", "prot-evil",
  "prot-good", "sleep", "!track", "UNUSED", "UNUSED", "sneak", "hide",
  "UNUSED", "charm",
 /* add new affect names here, they MUST be before the "\n" */

  two_arguments(argument, arg, arg2);
  if (!*arg || !*arg2) {
    send_to_char("Usage: aff <ch> <aff>\r\n", ch);   
  if (!(victim = get_char_vis(ch, arg))) {
    send_to_char(NOPERSON, ch);
  aff = search_block(arg2, aff_names, FALSE);
  if (aff < 0) {
    send_to_char("Unknown AFF.\r\n", ch);
  sprintf(buf, "(GC) %s set %s's %s %s.\r\n", GET_NAME(ch), 
      GET_NAME(victim), affected_bits[aff],
      ONOFF(!IS_SET(AFF_FLAGS(victim), (1 << aff))));
  mudlog(buf, NRM, MAX(LVL_GOD, GET_INVIS_LEV(ch)), TRUE);  
  TOGGLE_BIT(AFF_FLAGS(victim), (1 << aff));
  send_to_char(OK, ch);
