Mark, it is kind of a snarl. Not so much the incremental code
complexity, which is not high in this case; I could easily live with
it. It's having the additional test case - one we have to set up
specially, and which opens the client machine in the test to exploits
- that's no fun.
Your first 'graph is something I didn't know. I think it removes the pressure
to keep this feature. Go ahead and take it out, Hal.
