I think it was good that Gregory asked about it, and it's clear from the
answers that there are people actively using .gmodels, so we should keep
support for them.


As for your project, you could consider upgrading to Renaissance ... it
sounds a bit difficult with so many nib/gmodel files, but when I started

was squeezing my head on how to provide you with something better.  ;-)
