For whatever reason, the swp files are binary encoded. It's odd as VB
files are text and can be viewed with a text editor.
I might be wrong, but it seems that SW somehow embeds the referenced type

from Tools -> References, and see how the file size changes. This might be
an explanation for the apparent binary format.
