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.
