  Hm, create an object type ITEM_DOOR and use the values to assign door
  information.  Now change the format of the 'D' fields to just D<vnum>
  Then in all the door opening/closing/etc. procedures do a generic_find
  for the door object.

  Damage to doors can be accomplished by just removing the door.  You'll
  also want to have the door set flag in zone files load a door and set
  the current set of the door.  You may need to extend the amount of
  values per object, too.

  That's really all that I can think of needing to do.
