It will be in the next release.

Well, the levelfiles are quite small. They do add up to a
respectable amount, though:
[olet@apollo] ~> du -s -b /var/lib/games/rocksndiamonds
/var would be the natural place. I don't see any other
place they could go.

| but sysadmin work is not required for extra functionality.
| (sysadmins neither liek to fix gama data files nor fiddle around with
| groups, only because some user wrote a new level).
| if a game causes work or has some impact on the filesystem,
| most admins will deinstall it.
| (yes, this only matters for multi-user-machines, not for home users).
I'll do my best :-)
