Ack! -O.sum?! I don't ever remember the last time anyone actually
tried using that option! Glad to hear that '-O.sum e' still works,
though. :)

'-O.sum s' used to work (eons ago), but it hasn't had any attention
paid to it in a long time.

The whole purpose of those summary lines in RINEX was to enable
users to use ASCII tools like `grep` to get some rough idea of
which observables were present.  Is there any particular reason
that you really need them in the header, i.e. '-O.sum s', rather
than at the end?
