lacking List-Id, got filed exactly where I didn't want it. M-F-T modified

Well... yes and no. Scanning just the current transponder has its uses and a
manual merge - regardless of format - is possible; this is usually easier if
the output is already in the right format. (It will be anyway if -o is
specified *after* -c, but when I hit this problem, it was when I appended -c
because I'd forgotten it and vdr was running.)

However, I think that the NIT should be parsed anyway if possible.
