Right. I changed bug 5448 to request such a daemon option, and I will
implement it in my repository as soon as I get the time (or you can even
implement it yourself if you like). In the meantime, you could use a
daemon with your patch, --inplace refused, and max connections = 1 (to
avoid the issues I described in bug 4561 comment 6).
