What I'd do, since I am all for hacks when it comes to temporary
conversions, is that I'd just stick the save_char stuff that writes down
the ascii stuff into the old binary save_char code and have it write down
an ASCII file as well, problem solved.  Then you just strip the binary
one.  That is an easy hack solution.  I am sure it is easy enough to write
a script, for a veritable UNIX programmer guru, that takes care of the
conversion, but that is so beyond my current knowledge.
