There is no standard in the XAS community about how beamlines present
data.  The need to handle crazy files from crazy beamlines is
precisely the reason that the file type plugin mechanism exists in
Athena.  The main purpose of that mechanism is to "clean up" weird
data files for import into Athena.

That said, if you have hundreds of data files in front of you -- quite
reasonable for a qXAS experiment -- then Athena is probably not quite
the right tool for the job.
