It turns out that for the case of "N RINEX files of same type to M RINEX files of
same type as input" you do _not_ have to set '+obs +', etc. if you are testing
the 2016Oct18 beta version.  It also turns out that the only problem case was that
for RINEX GNSS observation files, thus requiring '+obs +' for version prior to Oct 17th.
On Oct 17th I made a correction for another '-tbin' issue which also fixed the
problem for RINEX GNSS observation files.  (For RINEX nav or met files, there
was no problem going back a long ways.)

Upshot: if you using '-tbin' with RINEX files, in and out, then you don't have to
worry about any of the '+obs', '+nav', or '+met' stuff -- as long as you are using
a version of teqc after 17 Oct 2016.
