That's not a problem.  Check out the make_prompt routine in comm.c.  I 
found that little gem a couple of weeks ago; the only changes I made were 
to the color.  It resets the attribute to grey before it displays the 
line, and an invisible player has their "ixx" level-invisibility 
highlighted (white or dark grey depending on their color level).  The 
idea posed about combat-stats on the prompt is useful.. something 
toggleable could be used, depending on the user record.
