Well, yes. To rephrase what I meant [which may not be what I *wrote* :)], I've
written a routine to load ACR/NEMA files, but it sure would be convenient to be
able to tell IDL about my nice new READ_ACRNEMA function so that, say, the
DIALOG_READ_IMAGE popup will show ACR/NEMA files as "images". As it stands it
looks like I'm going to have to add my own cludgy routine after the fact, or
rewrite QUERY_IMAGE or something.

We shall have to make one...
