[aprssig] APRSDos Features

I reiterate.  I'm not trying to clone a feature list, I'm also trying to 
implement "must have" that have reasons to exist that someone can 
actually describe a real-world use for.  If people start thinking of 
functions they use and how they use them, they might become more usable 
in newer clients instead of the newer clients just being a 
re-implementation of the old.  That's why I won't run the old clients 
myself, I don't want to limit my interfaces to what's been done before 
visually.  (Think of it as a partial "clean room" design, 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clean_room_design)

But thanks for the reminder of the list!
