When Gorm creates an archive it archives both the object instances and the
connectors.  Some of the gsmarkup examples look as though they contain the same
information (see calculator.gsmarkup).

I believe that the information being stored in both a .gorm and a .gsmarkup
file are similar enough to allow Gorm to be adapted to work with both.  It may
not be trivial, but it is doable.  As an example, currently Gorm can load BOTH
.gorm and .gmodel files.   The only reason it can't save gmodel files is
because they are *deprecated*.
