Right, I'm able to read the file as a table using C-C |, though it
ends up as a changed buffer.  For simple viewing, I really do not mind
the current set up that just modifies the buffer I.e C-c| is good
enough(an option to open read-only would be nice).


However, it's the ability to use the overlay to edit and save it back
in the same format as in the original file is what I was looking for.
