I don't use SAN myself in this case. I don't like SAN as part of a protocol.
If the adaptor sends "protover 2" I think it better should be aligned with the
winboard protocol. The 10 (about) GUIs/adaptors should follow the spec in detail
and should also be forgiving to some extent instead of forcing the 250 engines
that are around to be adaptive to 10 different dialects.
