Umm... I would just like to state, for the record, that I think that this 
a BAD idea.  On access to a buff file, the client should check if it
complies with the format that it understands.  I should also hope that the
users should be able to upgrade buff files (that could easly be written in
100% portable C)...  Though it is technicly OK to have users delete 
files, I'm shure that it can't be very good for our efficency.
