I can see the -d option being useful only because support should be simple to
add, but the option should be --allow-root to match pserver.  I'm not
sure I see the advantages of the -r option, except perhaps as an extension to
the BSD -R patch, as read/write access may be restricted via system
file permissions anyhow.
