[delta-l] Exporting DELTA-format data from Intkey

I don't think it's fair to say that all reasons would be illegitimate or 
related to file recovery. I would like to add:

(4) Or to diagnose/key-out a specimen using an application other than 
the CSIRO Delta suite...

(4) is why I was originally looking at the binary data (I can't run the 
official Delta at work because I do not have admin rights on my Windows 
7 workstation; I concede this will probably be resolved by OpenDelta, 
but I still might want to _use_ the data/key in another application).

Related to (1) or (2), and I don't mean to sound callous, but what 
happens when the author(s) is/are dead and the only data out there are 
in the intkey binary format? So, there is that reason also, which is 
probably related to archival purposes.
