It used to be. One of my fairly early changes was to put it in the text file, mainly because it was in the "no gameplay change" era of code restructure and that was the easiest way to ensure that

That was never intended as a long term plan; I was always going to come back and decide what to do with the whole power system, which is what's happening now.

I now have code with monster power removed, which (as takkaria said) involved changing the monster feeling code a bit. Once I've fixed a few of the worse existing bugs too I'll get it out there for testing.
