dccm -W and dccifd -M is now equivalent to putting the following line
in /var/dcc/whiteclnt:

    option dcc-off

Before the "option dcc-off" mechanism, -W was a hard to explain and
less flexible way to let some mailboxes opt-out of DCC filtering.  It
must remain in the code for upward compatibility, but I should have
removed it from the man pages.
