Screenwipe doesn't trigger traveling between maps in Strife

I don't know if this was ever reported, but I noticed Screenwipe isn't used when traveling between maps in Strife.

Starting a new game, or loading a save game will trigger whatever screenwipe you set in the options, but moving between levels will never trigger it.

I apologize if this was ever reported in the past, but I don't know if it was or not. I'd like to have the crossfade screenwipe between levels like it happens in vanilla Strife, so I'm curious why I can't get any screenwipes going from map to map. Has this always been broken?

screenwipes invariably never happen within hubs, which would be expected hexen behavior, but not in strife.

This might need a mapinfo flag or something.

I noticed this while putting together the Evil Unleashed demo, and I wished there was an option to add wipes as I'm ultimately planning on using the hub just for a highly scripted intermission screen.
