In mixed environments, it would really make sense for an OpenProj user to share his document in .mpp format, even though OpenProj can also save as a MS Project .xml file.

    The problem I see is that .mpp file are a LOT less documented by Microsoft than .xml file. In fact, they aren't documented really.

    Anyway, as of Office 2007, all file format for office applications are XML based.

    mpp is not sufficiently documented to make this possible. We can't do it.
