Copy it anywhere... It doesn't really matter. Effectively you should
"rename" the file to something else without the timestamp and .xac,
but I just didn't want to say "rename" because you really should keep
that one in place. Something like:
cp foo.20080713142372.xac foo2
Then you can:
File -> Open [foo2]

No worries. This is just File Management 101.
