If the MERGE utility is ever worked on again, it would be nice to add some 
basic error checking to see if the BIN files being merged are really BIN 
files.  Currently, you can take any two files (ie: JPG, DOC, etc), rename 
them to .BIN and MERGE happily merges them without giving any sort of 
error.  I ran into problems when somebody tried to email me some merged 
DXpedition logs, but one of the logs that was merged was corrupt and the 
person had no idea he was sending me a bad BIN file.
