Maybe Alex got confused when reading our website: the BioCocoa site  
mentions these formats indeed, but keep in mind that this description  
still only applies to the GNUStep compatible version I created for a  
paper (which has become the 1.6). Please also note that the support  
for the Beast format is write-only (no reading) as is also mentioned  
on the BioCocoa website.

Conclusion: I'm in no way liable for any financial claims from  
Mekentosj or their respective customers, I'm just a poor developer ;-)))
(and getting poorer...)
