I see that the maxkills stats say 'pl' where they should have 'me'.  But once
that's is fixed, do you still think it won't work?

Well, from the README.LTD, it doesn't support all the stats that we get now. 
While there are extra stats, you never get to see these unless you are playing
an INL game, so it doesn't do anything for pickup.  Things like doosh credit
and extra points for core planets go away.  The readme also says that xsg and
pledit won't work with LTD, which I would consider a major drawback.  There is
also the huge database file.
