	-u <rr type>
		Mark <rr type> for printing in unknown type format.
		This option may be given multiple times.
		-u is not meant to be used together with -U.
	-U <rr type>
		Mark <rr type> for not printing in unknown type format.
		This option may be given multiple times.
		The first occurrence of the -U option marks all RR types for
		printing in unknown type format except for the given <rr type>.
		Subsequent -U options will clear the mark for those <rr type>s
		too, so that only the given <rr type>s will be printed in the
		presentation format specific for those <rr type>s.
		-U is not meant to be used together with -u.

     Extend output format with ability to print certain given rr types 
in unknown type format (i.e. rfc3597 format).
