Oh, yeah, it did -- and for what it's worth, I agree with your
concerns -- but the patch wasn't coded that way, for whatever reason
(I've not been following the whole discussion). I still am not fond
of tacking a magical switch onto a single subcommand that is so
obscure that it will never be used elsewhere -- I mean, just use a new
subcommand. :-) But whatever.

Put me at -0 on a funky switch vs. a subcommand, and +1 on "validate
against the repos" thing.
