I think that I would have to agree with this. Tagged datafiles would be
much easier because they are "human readable", whereas datafiles like
what I use are not human readable because they are nothing more than a
string of numbers sperated by spaces. These numbers mean nothing to
someone reading the files, but means tons to the program that is reading
them in and parsing the data.
