See the redesign review I just posted.  I think it summarises the format
and situation, but in case it doesn't ...

The .players file is a flat array of player stat struct entries.  It is
searched sequentially to find the relevant entry during login, then a
pointer to the entry is kept by the ntserv process for updates to the
player's stats as they die.
