And implement it as an "Object in message" as I've read about somewhere 
and it only appears on the querying user's client.  Take a situational 
awareness feature and reduce it down to CQSERV's status, a service that 
is there and only 2 or 3 people know about.  Not worth the effort IMHO.

I'm only a year into ham (but 20+ years into programming), so I can't 
say what the early days were like.  I'm only trying to make TODAY better 
than YESTERDAY.
