Net::Z3950 uses Yaz's PQN parser "as is" -- the "@attrset gils" clause
is understood by any Yaz-based client, including yaz-client.  It's
"attributeset" command is merely a way of setting the default.

BTW., I initially misunderstood your statement above and thought you
meant that yaz-client understood "@attributeset gils".  That is _not_
true, but the PQN parser does not complain about it -- it silently
ignores it.  Seb, Adam: that gotts'ta be a bug, don't it?
