        For strictly memory reasons, I wouldn't use objects.  You also
wouldn't need to worry about things like race, size, weight.  These things
are all saved on a character already, why save them again?  How about
having just a list of [id|v]nums.  Then, when they're actually required,
you can use a bit of cpu to find out (and correlate) these bits.  Not only
that, but it would take you just a few moments to add in....hardest part
is just loading up files for idnums of chars who have left the game - you
could even skip this by assuming dead mobs/extracted characters clear out
all footprints they have in the game when they die/quit/etc.
