updated versions of both library and df3util are attached.  the library
now has "__attribute__((warn_unused_result))" on two prototypes
(df3_open_file + df3_create_file), and the df3Handle has been made more
robust.  df3util now has fewer bugs (I hope) and a partial
implementation of the Extended Density File Description format via a new
command: 'dfd'.  there's no "[format] binary" yet, "[cyclic]" must be
'off', and the program doesn't do any data interpolation (beyond my
abilities anyway).

enjoy, jr.
