What I have done is implemented a NO_SHOW flag, which allows the player
to interact with the object but it will not show up in the room. Then I
incorporate it normally into the room description. This is extra nice
for ex. if you want to have a shelf/container/fountain or whatever in
the room, you can have it working normally without showing up. Hope this
