Don't save it to the player file - after each reboot (or
crash) let them again get full exp for a given mob until
they've killed it a few times.  Assuming you don't have a
crash bug for the players to exploit, this should not be
much of a problem.
        And since you are adding to the part of the player
struct that doesn't get saved, you don't have to pwipe
