That's a good point.
It says to me that dccifd should not say one of A, G, R, S, or T,
but one of one of A, R, S, or T and separately either G or not.
Unfortunately it's too late to change the protocol.

I'll think about adding `dccifd -a IGNORE`.  Perhaps it will stop
seeming so clearly wrong, but I wouldn't count on it.
