New Sites Format...

I have been working on a set of utilities to enable users to
specify fields from site lists written in the new sites format.
One of the problems I have encountered with the new sites format
is the flagging of null values in the sites file. A solitary % as
a placeholder for a null numeric value causes the G_site_get()
function to return a -4 and skip the rest of the site.
Even if this was changed so that a solitary % (or @ for that matter)
could be parsed as a null value the Site structure itself does not
allow for attributes to be flagged as nulls. String attributes are
not a problem (they can be left as NULL pointers) but I think we
need a null_att to mirror the dbl_att and flag null numeric
Has anyone else encountered this and have any comments...?
Also has anyone else been working on a method of specifying fields
in command line parameters for use in programs that read sites files?
