Ideally, the patch should go in both Sirine's Call and Graphics Overhaul (detecting whether the other is installed for maximum install-order compatibility).
 
The code Lollorian posted looks decidedly orcish (i.e. I believe I added the door for berelinde way back in the Bodacious Era or something), so maybe it just wasn't patching properly for the proper WEDs. I'm not sure if Sirine's Call patches or overwrites, but the same concept would apply (determining the door vertices and patching them accordingly).

Awesome, thank you! This would be what I'd need to put into Sirine's Call, instead of overwriting the wed?

I'm guessing so, but I'd have to look at the code to be sure (feel free to attach some or point me toward it if you want me to look at it; I don't have the recent mod offhand). The only tricky part is defining the door vertices, but those should be easy enough to pick out via DLTCEP or NI if they already exist. For Gavin, I had to draw new doors (open and closed) from scratch, but I suppose that could be easier in one sense (especially since I cheated by hiding it behind an existing wall IIRC, heh).
