Seems this man page is getting old.  It still has options that aren't
even there anymore.

Hmmm.  That just blew away everything.  Now I don't have a test case
until I can download the 450 MB again over a 28.8k.  I'll see if I can
set up another test case between some other servers.  Don't worry,
that data was not important ... I just left it lying around to test
