You are right..but unfortunately, the lack of foresight on White Pine's
part to include the transmission rates in the exporting and importing of
phonebooks render it rather useless as a way to swap reflectors. (The CSV
format is a good idea, but White Pine didn't include half the fields).

I also find it's much easier to have everything for the connection on one
screen rather than having to page back and forth between various tabs..but
that's just a GUI decision.

I never did quite figure out how that worked...If you don't select
"enforce minimum send/receive settings", what does the client advertise as
its minimum rates? It's my understanding that the client advertises its
rates when it connects (min/max).
