.soy progress

The new 2-tier format is written out now, seperating object level from object-data level. This was pseudo-done in the former draft (blockid 0-127 == object level, 128+ object-data level) but this is far, far cleaner.

This allows objects to be quickly skipped-over on read/import, adds a much larger id-space both for types of objects and types of data within each object, and cleaner discard/recovery methods based on Palle's experience implementing the importer. We should have the blender importer/exporter up to something resembling this spec by tonight.

Check the updated .soy file format spec and give constructive criticism.
