As Johannes pointed out the game code shares tons of stuff, especially with
HOF (same game engine scripts, same graphics/animation/sequence code, same
music and sound effects code etc.). It wouldn't make much sense to separate
the LOL code from the KYRA code. Lol is not exactly a new engine, especially
not "a pure non-adventure engine" (game concepts aren't too different, just
the fighting and the character development).

Adding one more game of this type (after Elvira, Elvira II and Waxworks)
will not lead to a loss of focus for ScummVM (requiring website changes like
Max's idea of changing the "graphical adventures" bit to something like
"arbitrary (graphical?) PC games").
