I believe that PyGopherd does the same thing, and in fact that it does so 
because a reading of the source code of UMN gopherd indicated that's how 
*it* behaves.

Note too that gopher+, which PyGopherd supports at least part of, alters this 
because it is possible to send file size information with it.
