One of the biggest problems with Arc/Info data is that ESRI won't make the
formats of their data available to anyone. Even their so-called export format
is proprietary information. However, many people have reverse-engineered that
format; so many that it is considered a "standard" in some circles. Unfortunately,
the people who have reverse-engineered it aren't sharing what they've found, so
everyone else has to reverse-engineer it, too.

Because of that, I can't guarantee anything, but I can say that if you can give
me a pointer to some representative data of the type you're interested in, I can
try to reverse-engineer the format or find some sort of documentation for it.
(I have found some limited information on the Arc/Info Generate format, though
I know it's not complete.) If I can implement an import module for such data,
It will probably find its way into Farm Site.
