Could you resubmit it to address@hidden  This releases it under the GPL.
:)  Then I'll take a look.  I'm not promising anything, but if you simply
fixed '-n' to make the server read only, I can't think of an offhand reason
to object.  If you did more than this, please either back the rest out or
provide me with a good argument for the other bits before I spend time trying
to decipher source code.

Can anyone else think of a reason to object to this?
