 I think this discussion has drifted away from the point, just rest
 assured that nothing I am considering will have any effect on anything
 related to restore (or restoresymtab) (by which I do not mean that there
 are no improvements possible, just none I can think of at the minute...)
 All I am considering (and have been for years, while doing nothing about
 it, so...) is altering the format/location of the dumpdates file to make
 it a better fit for the way dumps are done today, rather that the way they
 were done in 1979 (or whenever) - which will (almost certainly) mean getting
 rid of 500 bytes of meaningless space padding that has no useful purpose,
 and was the subject of the PR.
