Gauge BSE file compat requirements

Hi Stefan et all,

as mentioned recently, I've been looking into writing an XML serializer that can
help with Beast's future file format. It's coming along nicely and I've pondered
how to auto convert the old sexpr BSE files to XML.

Also, with some googling, I managed to quickly cook up a Python sexpr parser
that can read BSE files into Python lists. I need a bit of an idea on how much
effort the compatibility conversion code deserves, could you please run
something like the following and send me the counts?

grep -ao 'bse-version "[^"]*"' $(find  ~/  /other-paths-to-bse-files/  \
  -name '*.bse')  | sed 's/.*://' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

So I get an idea of how many old BSE files are lying around and about version

Yours sincerely,
