Why less legible file format?   I am not arguing for tens of nm, I am saying
that that decision has no bearing on file format human readability.

Are we no longer in agreement that we will be saving these interim board files
in either mm or mils?

This interim file format is hopefully only good for a year or two until we can
get the s-expression format out.
