I was wondering about the (sic). Yes, if that portion applies to
the server as well, it needs to have the heading changed to
"server and client" like the rest of the sections, or I think this
statement might warrant it's own section for the server only impact.

(And I'll raise this issue on the dev list. I'd love to have
 revprop packing, but not at this cost...)
