If somebody else said:
  peer <your-server>
It would stop working.

It's probably reasonably easy to process them.  Just treat them like mode 3 
until the end where it is packging up the reply, they say mode 2 rather than 
mode 4.  The real question is does that do the right thing.  I think so, but 
I'll need to study the code some more and/or setup a test case.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
