This is fine when you have a small pfile, but when it gets large, you lag the
whole mud everytime you use it.  What I did was expand the player index
struct and added all the things I want to be able to query.  It takes up a
bit of memory but its quite handy.  Also, you have to update the table
whenever a player saves, and/or just before you use the info.
