Since I am currently again frustrated with 'someone else system', please 
keep in mind that 'Sunday programmers' like me will understand 
-printProxyversion without needing to search for it on the internet, but 
sysattr 1011 is not directly useful, except if the command-line would 
also provide a mechanism to translate that code to something understandable.
