is there a reason that the qSupported uses a ':' as the first separator but
';' for subsequent separators? It seems needlessly different.
I agree. But, that's what Jim added to the top of General Query Packets
as the convention:
The name of a query or set packet should be separated from any
parameters by a `:'; the parameters themselves should be separated by
`,' or `;'. Stubs must be careful to match the full packet name, and
check for a separator or the end of the packet, in case two packet
names share a common prefix. New packets should not begin with `qC',
`qP', or `qL'(1).
I don't feel too strongly about it. Do you think it should be changed?
I don't mind.
