It's not very clear in your description what you're going after... for
instance, is prime better than secondary?  Do you advance first in prime
then in secondary?  A lot of these questions will change the implementation.

For instance, I placed no difference between the varios classes a multi could
be, so I basically made classes bits, referenced by a single level int.

If the differences don't matter, then perhaps you could just make an array
of ints representing levels, the indices representing the class... thus,
the first int (subscript 0) would be the level of mage'ness... the next one
of theif, then cleric, then fighter... or what have you.  And check for a
positive level (predefinte the array with -1's)
