Frankly, the -N support is a bit shaky.

You should rather do this via URL operations. If you want to get it
all done in one commit, see Philip Martin's MUCC client, checked into
the Subversion tree at:

   contrib/client-side/mucc.c
   contrib/client-side/mucc-test.sh

"MUCC" stands for "Multiple URL Command Client".
