I fixed the problem with the parsing of the batch flags before the
protocol_version of the batch file is known.

As for further checking, I don't think I'll add anything else.  The
file has the options they should use to parse the batch file.  If they mess
things up, it's good for us to try to help them out, but I don't want to
clutter the transfer code with sanity checks for startup options.
