hi. i guess i'd prefer to view ANS as 1:N positive responses rather than 1:N
responses. so, i'd expect that things like
ANS ... ANS ERR
ANS ... ANS RPY
would be errors according to the consistency rules.
if i get back an ANS, i'm thinking that things are happening and i'm getting
back positive stuff.
if i get back an ERR, i'm thinking that nothing happened whatsoever.
