  One issue with adding record length checking for the
charmm pbeq plugin is that the file format doesn't incorporate
a magic number following a record length marker, so we don't
have as reliable a way to be certain we've got a file with
32-bit vs. a 64-bit record length markers. That said,
I'm coding something up, and will see if it works better than what
we've got there now. The DCD plugin had the nice property of
having a magick number immediately subsequent to the record length
marker, making it a straightforward combination of tests...
