I'm not sure I agree. They had source code for a Tango ASCII imported with
2.8. I don't think Protel has ever done a re-write from the ground up, so
why couldn't this source have been carried through 3.x, P98, and to P99 as
most of us are using now?

Maybe they didn't break it. I think they dropped it. Because they had it at
some point.

Remember when P98 (or maybe it was P99) version 2.8 importer made everything
10 times smaller? They finally fixed that.
