Levelporting by name

Glancing at the source shows that it's possible to type in the name of an area during controlled levelport rather than strictly using the number. Wizard mode easily shows that this is the case; "minetn" takes you to Minetown, "The Oracle level" goes to the oracle level, "The Gnomish Mines" goes to the branching level of the dungeons of doom, etc. It's more restricted during normal play; a test in SLASH'EM explorer mode shows that it's not possible to levelport to an area you haven't visited yet. I think forgotten due to amnesia is fine. The article makes no mention of this, so I assume it was completely unknown. -- Qazmlpok 15:17, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
