Well, I made this using the existing routines and hacked them a little.
This goes off the top of my head.

In config.c I added a list, like
sh_int saved_rooms = {

Then I made a save_saved_rooms() routine in the house one, copying the one
that saves the normal house-rooms. As far as I remember one of the house
rountines takes a room number as a save argument, if not you should just
be able to hack a similar one yourself. Then just run this list of
saved_rooms through it, untill the room-number is -1.
Then you can make a similar routine, thats called along with the house
loading/booting one, that loads the rooms from the saved_rooms list.

I guess this could be made smarter, like making a index file or something,
but since I only use it on a couple of rooms, I didn't bother writing some
more flexible code. This way you need to compile and reboor the mud every
time you add a new room that has to be loaded/saved.

Well.. hope this helps,
