[nos-bbs] jnos winlink2000 forwarding

I'm quite frustrated myself trying to make this work. I've done test
forwards between AirMail and WinLink 2000 stations with full data capture
to try and analyze this (with different settings B2F, B1, B0, etc) and
I'm STILL not making any progress. It tiring running these tests over
and over again, and very time consuming :-(

I know for a fact that the FC proposal is not supported by any version
of JNOS, and by the looks of it, the FBB source I have for reference
purposes also does not support it. I don't know what the latest source
from F6FBB has for FC support either. So in the meantime we're stuck
with getting FA and FB proposals to work.

The latest testing that I have done between JNOS 2.0c4 and WL2K is
showing that JNOS gets the 'FS +' in response to me sending an FA
proposal, but nothing is being sent by JNOS to the other end.

I have NO idea why this is happening, the only way for me to figure
this out is putting in tons of debugging and doing it that way. This
could be related to changeovers (ie, IRS vs ISS), I just don't know.

Yes, it's frustrating. I suppose I should add support for FC type
proposals, but supposedly AirMail and WL2K are backwards compatilble
with the FA and FB proposals, so I would rather see that working
first for starters.

Sorry, that's all I have to report on this so far ...
