this behavior is 1) consistent with other command-line client behavior, and

The behavior is not consistent. But I would like to work on all the commands
so that they exhibit this behavior.

the case where the user is either gathering the contents of a few specific
files to exchange will a business partner, or scripting some operations
using the command-line client, should any of the requested files be cat'ed
when some of them cannot be?
Valid point. Should we have a command line option that tells we are
supposed to stop as soon as we get an error? Something like
stop-on-error?
I had version 1 of the patch reviewed by Peter and he thinks that other
commands should also be fixed. But considering the arguments raised by you I
would like to tackle them only if there is a consensus on the behavior.

Thanks for detailed review Dan. When I submit V3 of the patch I will try to
rectify all those mistakes.

Thanks again,
Vivek
