Simple to add, if you can code.  Just make another exit flag, EX_SECRET and
add a check for it in procs like do_exits, look_in_direction, perform_move,

You'll have to make some bigger changes to olc/db though, cuz the code
doesn't take into account expandability, just assumes you'll never have
more than the 3 or so flags it has...

Av fun, good luck an hey...enjoy life :)
