Works for me, since we'd want to keep that for a time anyways, the real
question is probably weather or not it should be depreciated.  You give
a good argument against.

Use format parameters.  The parameters get discarded in the string, but
they are used to indicate the placement of targets in the arg list.
Then, you narrow your target list to the following:


They have the following meanings:

TO_CHAR = send to all chars listed in format string/args.
T0_NOTCHAR = send to everyone in the same room(s) as those listed except
for the listed chars.
TO_ROOM = send to the room of any of the chars listed (we could use
different format args here to specify objects or rooms directly).
TO_OUTDOOR/TO_ALL = The rather obvious meaning.
