The othelo game was written using static variables, so that you could exit
the game, queue up some music (or whatever), and return to where you left
off. This is explained in the (now removed) docs.

I have yet to even install the new "plugin" code, but I will be surprised
if you can still do this - so yes, it is now down to maintaining a disk
file, which is gonna slow things down somewhat. It's a shame, but a small
price to pay for the advantages of the plugin system.
