        Nope, they're not. They're in a not-ASCII form. :)

I'd just take 5 minutes if you already have installed that patch though,
and instead of adding a vnum (which is how I assume it works), i'd just
have a new directory (mailobjs?) and use the read/write object code
already written in what, objsave.c, to write out to that file as if it
were a rent file.  Shouldn't be more than a 5-6 minute job.
