s/0x177/0x377/. I'm such a dolt. ENOCOFFEE. The 8th bit is the point, for
some values of point.

Back when I still worked for a well-heeled, if only through pyramid-scams
on investers in the North American numbering and speculative DNS markets,
employer and could afford to go to IETF meetings, I did talk to people in
the MTA and other lines of work about foo-in-infrastructure.

One can hope that people do the correct things, but sometimes they need to
be reminded what "correct" and "do" mean.

I wonder what goodies and treats await me in this tasty tarball ... after 
all "sendmail X is 8 bit transparent" ...
