The absence of an X-DCC header on whitelisted messages has been a
constant source of confusion here.  People think that DCC somehow
skipped that message.  It would be quite helpful if people could
tell when a message was whitelisted.  Rather than overloading the
`X-DCC-*-Metrics' header though, I'd recommend using a new one that
still begins with `X-DCC-*-'.  As well, it should clearly say that
the message was whitelisted.  `0' means nothing to most people.
