No, probably not :-) The trick with Acorn files is preserving the load
and execute addresses. A spark archive will do that, but as far as I know,
there's no spark dearchiver for a Beeb. It would be easy on an Archimedes
or a RISC PC, but not everyone will have one of those -- and even if they
did, they might not have a way to attach a 5.25" drive to it.

I'm open to suggestions...
