 In that case, it's only a little better than SNADS.  The reason that the
/400 should know to send the definition is that I sent it the "binary"
command.  Of course, all that seems to mean in practice is that nothing
gets translated.  I wish there were a way to specify retaining the
container. It's also between two /400s, so it should know better.
