I don't think it's a hassle to want to be able to go to findu before a
trip and map out the "popular repeaters" along the way, and preprogram
them before leaving (or while at rest stops).  Which is also why I like
the idea of using the callsign for the object with -R (and multiple
repeaters being -R1 -R2 etc) since that should be a simple lookup to
find them all in an area.  But I suppose we'll have to agree to disagree
on this point.
