While waiting for a "make" to finish this morning, I took down the Sun
"Network Programmers Reference Guide" and had a look at their
description of the XDR library.  Interestingly it looks like it can be
plugged into R with very little effort because our saveload code is
structured in exactly the right way.  So ..., contrary to what I said
before, I will have a bash at adding it.

It would still be useful to look at the other data formats.
