[IDEA] Player editor

I was checking all the code that requires player wipes (I know, it can be
done with ASCII Pfiles, if you have them implemented) and I was wondering
if anyone has thought of making a shell player editor that would act
almost exactly as a text editor for ASCII pfiles.

This would allow you to add the required fields if new ones are used while
still keeping binary pfiles.

I know the advantages of ASCII pfiles but no implementation has satisfied
me yet, so I'm leaving it for later. But i was wondering about this in the

This editor would read the pfile and would know the variables (would be
compiled as a utility and would understand the pfiles) and it could be
done to add missing fields automatically.

Just wondering
