Hmmm ... things start getting messy. Since we have <Set Number>[ - <Optional Qualifier>] - <Individual filename> for the subfiles it might a good idea to change this as well to:

<Set Number>-[<Optional Qualifier>] - <Individual filename>

and consequently use:

<Set Number>-[<Optional Qualifier>] - <Unofficial Part Number>.dat

I'm going to call for a vote shortly for the following change. Please rise your voice if there is anything you cannot put up with:



Change in http://www.ldraw.org/Article593.html:

Quote:Unofficial parts are allowed to be used. The filename of the unofficial part is subject to the naming rules above (e.g. 33056.dat would be renamed to <MPD Filename> - 33956.dat).

to

Quote:Unofficial parts are allowed to be used. The filename of the unofficial part is subject to the following naming rules:

<Set Number>[-<Optional Qualifier>] - <Unofficial Part Number>.dat

<Set Number> is the the number printed on the model's container.
<Optional Qualifier> is a sequential number, starting with 1, added if there is more than one set that could be assigned <Set Number>
<Unofficial Part Number> is the unofficial part number assigned in that very moment

(e.g. 33956.dat would be renamed to 3345 - 33956.dat or 3345-1 - 33956.dat).
I'm ok with this.

Although I kinda hate breaking backwards compatibility the spec isn't that old yet so it shouldn't cause to much hassle.
