Sounds like it would be a lot easier to just have your builders include
what is east and west in their room descriptions.  But if you really like
the idea, you could define a couple strings (like exit descriptions) which
are appended to the main description when you enter from that side.

North Enter Description might say "You want to turn around and go back
towards the north." but then you need word wrap to add it to the main
description. :)
