Re: QUESTION: More versatile exits?

	I dont quite get what you're saying. Chances are, when you leave
the room you are going to go north, south, east or west (possibly
intermediate dirs) to get to the next one, which is why i dont see how its
not done well. What do you mean the exit can be anything? Are you saying i
can leave 'goat' and go into a room to the left of me? And its pretty
hard, well impossible to do something like that without modifying source
at all. If you are more specific perhaps people can help.. and say what
the different uncompat 'thing' was.
