The best way to do it in my opinion (I've had this argument
before) is to use a $room_db.  Then just have @go search
through the $room_db.  If you use the PC way you have x
hundred characters running around with let's be nice and
say 1/4 of the total $room_db.  That's a lot of wasteful
and repetitous db bloat.  It also takes more effort on
each user's part, you have to add each room, you have
to know the # of the room to go there initially... ick.
