I agree!!!  put command line options back.

Further suggestion to assist the tracking of multiple clients on the
same (multiprocessor) system.  How about a command line option that
changes argv[0]?  That way, you can distinguish different client
processes in a ps output.

Also, where has the stats page gone?  I read complaints on this list
about misformatted stat results, but I can't find the query form on
any of the webpages.  I always get:

"Forbidden Error, You're probably looking for search.cgi, search.cgi
 has been disabled until we can repair the stats files."

What's the URL for stats?
