  Allocating and de-allocating on the fly is extremely dangerous unless 
you're very comfortable with the code. A _much_ easier and safer method, 
is to add a new door flag, BLOCKED. Do not show blocked doors to players. 
Then, its extremely simple to write a few diff functions that can all 
remove the blocked flag from the door, either one side, or both. On 
duris, we have room procs that look for magic words, and item procs that 
check for various actions, such as rub lamp, push statue, etc. You could 
even use a few mob procs, such as asking the guard please, or offering to 
line his pockets.
