One method I've seen (and it's in a few patches, don't know which one
specifically) is to have the zone files contain a list of builders for
that zone.  You then check for the player in that list.  You make the
list editable by imp's within zedit and you've got a flexible way to do
it.  This does mean you need to either convert your zone files or have
some sort of version formating system on the zone files.
