Description extended q-pointer for accessing non-Pick and/or non-local files.

A Super-Q-Pointer is a q-pointer to a file which is not in the local Pick file system. The first attribute is a "Q", the second attribute is blank, and the third attribute contains a host name (from the "hosts" file) followed by a colon followed by the file name on the remote file system.

The first attribute may also be "QS" in which case the file-save process saves the entire remote file as if it existed on the local machine provided the save is used with the "e" option. This data may then be restored into that same remote file or into some other file.
