superficially yes, but depends on the exact structure of the project +
data, of which I know nothing.  but, where there's a will etc.  if the
data can be created as a set of "ranged" 8-bit df3s, for instance, it
can easily be "assembled" into a a single df3 with full 16-bit range
(recoding data as needed).
