I'd actually suggest not doing this, and rather using a slightly different
system.  Specifically, when you want to interact with the player of a
certain name, and *nothing* else, use '0.<name>'.  A seriously easy patch
and allows you to actually pay attention to the output 'where' gives you
to use it to 'goto 4.guard'.

Erm... Yeah.  Whatever.
