I have briefly examined it.  Apparently the geometry data is in the same
format as the geometry fragments in shapefiles.  I don't think it would be
too hard to implement limited read support in OGR.  Perhaps one weeks work 
so.  A good job in perhaps two.

Still, that is alot to do without any specific funding for the effort.
