One more thing I want to point out in case you haven't already thought
of it.  Once two-way negotiation is in place, each side should refuse
incremental recursion only if it can't fulfill its *own* duties under
incremental recursion; the sides should not second-guess each other.
This way, e.g., incremental recursion can be used on a push with
--delay-updates if the server supports the combination, regardless of
whether the client would if it were the receiver.
