In my pending cleanup patch at one point I actually completely revamped
the scoreboard ... but then tossed it away 'cause it was a big change. 
What I did was to split up the scoreboard into many smaller structures. 
This does result in a moderate increase in L1-cache locality, but the
effect is really small and I figured not worth it at this point. 

If you were to attempt to do this then I suggest that you have a
scoreboard_status_slot structure and array. 

But please wait for the rest of my patch since I play in that area
already.  I still haven't got my development machine back on-net since my
move ... fighting with the phone company about a line they supposedly
