include/dcc_proto.h contains the special values including "many"
and implicitly defines the limits.
srvr/db.h shows how the values are stored in the DCC server database.

Note that all of those values are subject to change, given a rolling
of protocol or database version numbers.

The DCC body checksums do not care about RFC 822 headers.
An X-Bogosity header will be ignored unless you use something like
`dccm -S X-Bogosity`.
