A quick hack... have an invisible (some muds provide 'ethereal' mobs that
can't be seen/attacked/etc.. just do mobprogs) on the other side that
closes the door when someone enters... it'll try to close the door even
when it's closed, perhaps, but then, only the mob would get the "but it's
closed' message.

Figuring out cool things to do with the handful of commands available takes
some inginuity(sp)... I'm at a loss on this one (haven't mobprog'ed for a
LONG time)... wandering mobs might best be left as spec procs... look at
the SPECIAL(mayor) for a sample of a good wandering mob.
