Re: New fields in control files?

I was away from the internet for a few days, and immediately people get
worried,  when I don't answer immediately   (snow on slopes + skis ...)

A good question.  There is a way to kill headers we don't like, but
there is presently no way to add new headers without making new code.

The place where transport-level meta-data (with new headers) are written
into transport control file is  router/rfc822.c:  sequencer()

How, indeed, can some external(?) utility to feed new headers into
the message.  They need (possibly) be replicated in the sequencer()
into all subset headers.  (Each different "channel" value forms its
own groups.)
