HPSF does no longer recognize property sets. You can verify this easily using
the POI browser: Opening a "Summary" or "DocumentSummary" should display the
properties in the set with names and values on a light green background.
However, it does not recognize them as property sets and therefore just displays
them as any other POI file: a byte dump on a white background.

This worked fine before Andy changed HPSF to use the common little endian
classes, so I guess he broke something. I haven't looked at his changes yet
since time is still an expensive resource. But anyway, I don't like to wipe the
floor after anyone else. He who broke it should fix it.

I give up.

Okay, I'll roll back the changes to activate the latest working HPSF version.
