I'm going to add a hack to net/ntop to force the version checking "spy" aka
"phone home" callbacks not to run at all. Of course, it will still accept
the --skip-version-check switch, but it will do nothing special in that
I think this may be useful to earmark under a globally usable option, where
supported. Any objections to the name "no-home-callback"? I'm trying to
avoid the term "spyware" if possible, as that normally refers to things that
are quite a bit more malicious.
no-home-callback Disable automatic phone-home callbacks such as version checks.
