Maybe I am not understanding or maybe I didn't make myself clear (both
very frequent...:)

I want to limit access to full areas (several tens of rooms) to a range of

So, let's say you want to limit access to the chessboard to be used only
by players whose level is between level 21 and level 40, so a level 19 or
alevel 41 would not be able to enter the place...

At first I had made several flags (UNDER20, UNDER40, UNDER60, ABOVE21,
ABOVE31, ABOVE41, ABOVE51) which did let me set ranges in the rooms, but
it was too cumbersome to put such flags in every room I made (and a waste
of flags, also!) so I was thinking that maybe a flag for the whole zone
would do the trick easier (or a new field in the zon file)

I wanted to do this because even if I limit the entrance to a zone,
immortals can teleport inside the zone and transfer their buddies inside,
so they get to visit forbidden zones or zones still in building stages...
