Keep extra information in STIL or put it directly in SAP files?

pfusik: As I resisted STIL for many years, here's how I got convinced to it:

  1. It's very well documented.
  2. We have lots of existing entries.
  3. It was easy to support it in ASAP.
  4. SID players require the user to locate the STIL file. If you search for the file automatically, it requires no user intervention to show her additional potentially interesting information.
  5. The information is easy to understand if you reformat it instead of showing it as-is.
  6. Ramos was lobbying it all the time. ;)
