   There's one small problem I see with changing room variables to unsigned 
   is that right now NOWHERE is -1.  Make sure you remember to change this 
   (to, say, 65536) when you cgange to unsigned.

Great, except he said he wanted to change it to signed int (as opposed to
signed short int)...  I was just telling him its OK to change anything
in structs.h, as long as you're prepared to change everything that was
dependent on it (including a possible pfile wipe).
