That's what the `FOOCF_LOCATOR' #defines are for in locators.h.  These
aren't used yet, `but they will be'.

I considered doing this earlier, but decided it didn't actually solve
any problems that `FOOCF_LOCATOR' doesn't.  Especially since only
busses generally look inside cf_loc[] anyway; it's just not that hard
to get it right in the relevant places.
