I just tried to implement this, but noticed a problem: In many places  
we use "Broken Sword" to refer to both games simultaneously, and then  
distinguish them by adding 1 or 2. If we drop the "1" everywhere, then  
a lot of ambiguity crops up. To resolve that, we'd have to replace  
ever occurrence of things like "the Broken Sword games" by "Broken  
Sword and Broken Sword II". Maybe we should allow some alternative  
names for such cases? Like "Broken Sword part I and II" or "Broken  
Sword I & II" ?
