I still don't like this, but it is probably a necessary evil. At least
document these new packets properly somewhere and explain why they are
needed, so that people who read the code in the future and wonder what the
%)"#(¤= this POPS/POPF (or PFH/PTH whatever) thing is, can manage to make
sense of it.

I don't understand why PACKET_START_TURN and CLIENT_GAME_OVER_STATE are
now supposedly useless.
