If the QSO shows up in both logs at some point - there can't be any 
NIL deductions.  Essentially what the software has to do is count the
first "QSO" as the dupe.  

Some people - like N6RO - have gotten into the happen of sending the 
callsign of the station they are working when S&Ping.  I haven't started
doing this - but I really appreciate the confirmation when people do it
to me.
