Any program that arbitrarily places restrictions like that on the user 
(me) is not acceptable.  Yes - it's good in some instances.  In others 
it may render the application unusable.   In our experimental amateur 
world, it's important we have total control of our station.

Mike did it right with PocketAPRS.  It'll accept non-standard settings 
after issuing the user a warning.  (Of course now with the new paths, 
PocketAprs is due for a good session with the debugger...)
