I have a palette somebody else wrote, which I want to edit.  So I have 
no "source code" notebook for it.  I want to edit it, preferably in an 
environment that understands Mathematica syntax.

Obviously, just opening it in Mathematica won't do: it appears as a palette.

I certainly don't want to edit it in some text editor, for that messes 
up the cache and knows nothing about Mathematica syntax.

And I don't see how to edit it in Wolfram Workbench: If I try to Import 
it, no matter whether I specify Initialization cells or Input cells, I 
seem to get nothing -- just a message about the nb file from which 
(nothing!??) was imported.
