I think I'll probably not take this one for now.  I think /N is just a
stop-gap until I can do a better scheduler, which would almost
certainly depend on servers to gate incoming requests, rather than the
client limiting the number that it dispatches.

This is good.

Good in principle, but I think it might be better to make the server
just always send its version number when acccepting a request.  It
might be useful to have in the client verbose log in case there's ever
a bug of this kind.
