This is interesting and whilst I know I would find this by looking in
the code, I prefer to wait for life events to hit the fan :)

Bertha has contacted me offlist but I have been ill and have not replied
as yet. Features like this make dcc a very powerfull tool and I can see
that I have a lot to learn :)

I hatched the latest dcc into Fidonet and this hopefully will result in
some more exposure.
