Hey. It looks cooler!

Who knows?

When I started the script version several months I tried to use the same 
names as the MRTK used.  In these two cases that was DELIMITER_FIELD and 
DELIMITER_RECORD.   To COBOL-ish so I picked RcdDelim and FldDelim as 
they allow visual alignment.

Again who knows.  As I re-write/transmogrify it I'll probably make them 
_all_ more human.

Losing the DSL the end of the month and Adelphia has been bought by Time 
Warner Telecomm so it is interesting trying to get a price or place 
order online.  That 300 baud modem is looking more likely daily -- well 
   actually a 56k is what I'll have to use if.
