meaning of non-explicit attribute sets. A "*" or a "+" can
explicitly appear in a proxyattrset statement, resulting in the

Let me confirm, that I should specify "proxyattrset 0 1.1" to match
an empty attribute list, and only an empty attribute list. Will a
'*' than match emptiness as well, or does it only match where there
is some attribute specified by the client?
I will work on this as soon as I am able to, although it seems this
