Difference Between an '.xlb' File and a '.pip' File??

Both the ,xlb and .pip files seem to have something to do
with toolbars. .xlb seems to belong to Excel and .pip
seems to be associated with Office 11. It used to be that
we had only .xlb files, so what's the purpose of the .pip
files? Oh, I'm running Office 2003 under Win XP.

.pip files store menu and toolbar usage data used to implement
personalized menus. This is the feature that hides, shows, and rearranges
menus and toolbars based on your usage. You can control this feature under
the Tools/Customize/Options menu.
