Hmm. Unfortunately, this is very clumsy, since a *RPY can be received much later in time. So if I have an automated "message gatherer" utility and encounter a *RPY, it's effectively an orphan until I go back to retrieve ALL the *INQ msgs trying to match it up!

I guess I don't understand what you mean by a "gatherer" but it seems reasonable to me that when you encounter an *INQ message you check for a *RPY. If you don't find one then flag the message as waiting for a reply otherwise match the *INQ and the *RPY.

Of course if you're trying to avoid processing the messages more than once then that will be difficult but you could minimise the work by keeping a list of outstanding *INQ messages and just reprocess those.
