Steve Larsen will prolly know better, IIRC the QuakeEd source
sets a type indicator 66dec to identify a mipmap lump as used
by QuakeEd. Look into TexturePalette.m for details.

I am too busy right now to check with the m68k version, has
anybody of those few with access to the NeXT already tried
QuakeEd with an unpacked gfd.wad from the shareware? I could
put together a NeXT Quake Toolkit, but qbsp,vis,light will
crawl on a 68k machine...

Btw., the "qlumpy" utility that creates mipmaps (dithered
if necessary) from WAD95 files with TEXTURE and patches
is not included.
