I had a look at the format. A BIG step forward. Wonderful.

Question, though:

What do we do to mark a log line as "DUPE" or "NO-QSO", so we don't
get penalized for not marking dupes as dupes, or claiming credit for a
busted qso that we know we didn't complete (without removing the line
and causing the other guy to get a penalty). 

(In the latter case, if no-one steps up to solve that problem, I'm
going to put NO0QSO in as the call sign, so they'll at least drop out
as dupes, giving the other guy a chance at a point when the log is
