        The main purpose, as far as I could tell, was to map the savable
things such as specific structs, strings, and the sort while discarding
the things that were not saved - such as mob specific attachments and the
like.  I removed mine.  If you're still using yours, or aren't sure if you
have any dependancies on it, just rename char_file_u to something like
garbage_u and see what happens when you compile :)

        It took me a short amount of time to hunt down all the oblique
references to it, but it isn't that hard once you're using ascii pfiles
(though - i had both operating during a switchover period!)
