I like your idea a lot. But I have a feature idea that hopefully isn't too
difficult...what if you made it check files to see if they're the old WLD
style first? Maybe you already have this. But it would make life a lot easier
for implementors who already have a lot of zones. Who would want to go around
changing each individual room? You know? :-)
