Then we will be 100% on target for 2.0 :-)  If we need to accept the trailing
semicolon, then 1.3.15 needs a small bit of work.  I suggest we apply
the 1.3.15 patch, and work forward from that patch with the ';' exception.

I'd suggest we work up a short script to run requests and pump them
into the server, and look for specific elements of the return to decide
we like the behavior.  I'm out of time this afternoon, but you are
right, it's certainly a good idea.
