[DXLog.net - Support] Any plans to support Alt+X (Extra Data Window) and .XDT files?

This should be pretty easy to implement, no?  .XDT files are simple text
files, one line per callsign (plus an optional Window # TITLE and #
VARIABLE definitions).  See

.XDT files are very useful as a "names database," safer to use than
automatic pre-fill.

Early Win-Test used binary .DTB files for pre-fill, but they are considered
a deprecated feature, with complex search rules that don't need to be
copied to DXLog.net.  Much redesign is needed to do pre-fill of multiple
fields properly.  .XDT variables could be used to do pre-fill (optionally),
eliminating any reason to support binary .DTB files, but for now all that
is requested is for the names data to pop-up as soon as you type the call
in the logging window, plus the "Add .XDT file dialog."
