I used .tab originally, to mark them as
files with tab-separated columns (except '#'
for comments), a slightly different format from
the main DB.  It was a spur-of-the-moment
thing, nothing deep there.

I think Arthur put in the <pre> stuff.  I'm not
such a big fan of that myself; XML hurts my eyes.
