I had a look at the sources and this is just as comment for people who doesn't
speek German (and can't understand the comment lines):
As far as I can see:
- the code is only able to treat "INTEL" i.e. little-endian files.
- it cannot handle sparse or complex matrices
- I cannot find any hints that structs are handled
- if it can handle n-dim arrays these would be deducted to 2-dim arrays in file
  storage. (same could have happened to structs)

Couldn't you persuade "Someone" to give you more infos about the features of
this routines and what he really decoded. The most of what I saw is very
similar to the old format: Thus, where are the diffs?
