0000908: Restrictions on action variables not accepted when declaring kinds of actions
The Going [direction] from [somewhere] construct does not appear to be usable in defining kinds of action.
Example is a room. A room called Quandry is west of example.

Going west from Example is leaving town.
The same problem exists with Going east to Quandry. Going west in Example does not produce the error.
No tags attached.

A timing issue (Inform was reading this sentence before defining the optional clauses attached to the "going" action, such as "from R"); fixed.
