I'm curious in how the DFM/LFM format is incompatible with a 64 bit OS (or 128 bit
OS like on a Sony Play Station, ect.)?  I guess this would be in reference to the
binary DFM file format, which I'll admit will have some problems as you mention.
What would a text-editor readable format of the DFM offer that would be counter to
an OS or CPU which is greater than 32 bits?
