One of the things I liked about Merc systems was the ability to easily go 
in and edit the player files w/o having to be online or use any kind of 
external editor.  It's very nice.  An option to the disk space problem is 
the possibility of using something like gzip/compress to compress the 
TEXT files and decompress them when the player logs in.  This should, of 
course, be an option in config.c.

No flames here, just a nice big green light. :)
