"format" in the cellhd files refers to how many bytes are used to represent
each cell in binary format. Add 1 to the "format" value to determine how many
bytes are used: "0" = 1 byte per cell, "3" = 4 bytes per cell. Not really any
way to change from 4 bytes to 1, unless the cell values are not really very
large. See the GRASS Programmer's Guide for details.
