Correction: which I'm hoping to finish by about two days after I figure out why this compiles on Windows but not Ubuntu. I am finally realizing why all the links between the extension folders were a bad idea...

Funny story, the first thing I did was:

Turns out that makes it impossible to progress, but it took me a while to examine everything else and figure out that I was actually stuck. After restarting, REZROV DOOR did the trick. But, you might want to add that synonym...

I think you're the first person to try that! It'll be fixed in the next patch.

For what it's worth, I was only using it as a shortcut for REZROV NORTH DOOR (to disambiguate it from the south door); I don't think I would have thought about using spells on compass directions in general. But it's probably a good idea in general to be robust about players using directions as nouns.

In the current version it will redirect to a door if possible, and otherwise give the "not substantial" message (same as if you REZROV MOONLIGHT or such).
