Separate on/off are 100% safe only when on/off itself has a reply,
hence the overhead.

Currently 'noreply' will still send the error if the command has wrong
number of tokens, and thus no attempt is made to parse it (though I
could parse it, I think that wouldn't be right).  To help this a bit
we may add a startup option to the server, 'close_on_error', and use
it for some errors that should never be ignored, so the error
condition won't go unnoticed.
