That's fine with me. I do have another concern, though -- a server that
doesn't recognize --copies-only isn't going to just say, "I don't recognize
--copies-only." It's going to send a potentially massive stream of log
information down the wire to a client who ultimately doesn't want it.

That's kinda bad, right?
