Actually, Athena can open binary SSRL files--I just successfully  
opened one of Lia's files in Athena.

Here's what I did:

Under Settings, choose Plugin registry.
Check the SSRLB box.

 From there, it opened fine.

Does trying that work for you, Lia?

I am using Athena 0.8.061 on a Mac running OS 10.5.8.
