[CQ-Contest] 1 ponters for CQWW - A PROPOSED SOLUTION

This solution does not allow the CQing station to get a mult credit 
since 00 and not a 03/04/05 is sent.  It would seem to me that the best 
solution, in order to keep the "flavor" of CQWW, is to automatically 
give mult credit for your country and country's zone(s) for each band. 
Then, US stations would not need to make 0 point QSOs for the mult, the 
Europeans are happy since US stations aren't working each other 
inflating the scores for a "win", and scores are not dramatically 
changed keeping records intact.
