Here is my solution. It is not a coding solution, but it will work :-)

Get yourself a mud lient like tintin or tinyfugue that supports 
"highlighting" and use that instead of telnet. You can make exits appear 
green still, but you can make your gossips exits, etc appear red, orange, 
or whatever color seems to work.

The reason I say that is because if you change your ANSI codes, some 
players may not like that. I speak from experience b/c I played a mud 
that did this (changed colors) and ended up changing back b/c ppl didn't 
like it.
