There's been some chat on the APRS groups about how we shouldn't
include the tilde and bar (~ and |) in APRS packets as those are
streamswitch characters and having them in the packet data might
confuse the TNC for folks running programs that use CONV mode.

Now am I just turning into a grumpy old man or is that a bit
ridiculous and would be holding us back in the 1980's?

PS.  Yes I know - this grumpy old man thing and the streamswitch issue
are totally independent...
