Clean up and rewrite sys-file-reader.  The rewritten version is simpler
and better abstracted, and should be easier to maintain and extend.
It avoids using structures to read file data, which is prone to
padding variations among compilers.  It should also handle non-IEEE
754 system files, although I haven't been able to find any.  It has
been tested against many .sav files obtained from the Web and found to
produce the same results as the earlier version of the code, or in
some cases improved results.  It is more tolerant of format variations
found in the wild.
