For each acedb session, a list of all the objects created in that
session is saved as a keyset file in the directory database/new/ and a
list of all the preexisting objects that have changed is written in a
file in database/touched.  The file names look like

	new-1999-03-25_12:09:13_rd
or
	touched-1999-03-25_12:09:13_rd

giving the date and the user id who gained write access as in the
session name.  

So, to see what objects parsing a file creates or changes, just save
before parsing the file to establish a new session, then save again
afterwards to make the lists.  Of course, you can't see the lists
without saving, so if you want to do that you will have to parse into
a dummy database and throw it out.  We could consider adding
tace/aceclient commands to show the lists for the current session...
