One reason I don't normally use --dd-grab-all is because I don't want
mfdb touching today's listings unless I explicitly tell it to with
--refresh-today.  My rationale is if something goes wrong and messes
up future scheduling, I'll have time to notice it and correct it.  If
it messes up today's schedule, I might not have time to notice.

It looks like DataDirectProcessor::GrabAllData() hard codes the start
date as currentDate().addDays(-2).  Is there any chance of changing
that to currentDate().addDays(1) unless --refresh-today is used?
