The SCI engine loads vocab.997 on startup, and fills in an internal structure that allows interpreter code to access these selectors via #defined macros. It does not use the file after this initial stage.
==Removal of the graphics subsystem==
The graphics subsystem is currently incompatible with much of the UI in SCI1 and later, and certain rooms in SCI0. It would be nice here to revert to a plain bitmap-based approach (like ScummVM). However, we want to keep the graphics subsystem around as it is well suited for SCI32; a battery of unit tests is desired to make sure that this remains possible.
