Subject: pkg_add no longer accepts -

I tried installing a pkg from stdin ("cat pkg | ssh host sudo pkg_add -"),
and found that this doesn't work any more, even when the pkg_add(8) 
manpage claims otherwise:

 	miyu% cat /usr/pkgsrc/packages/i386/4.0/All/pine-4.64.tgz | ssh jab sudo pkg_add -
 	pkg_add: no pkg found for '-', sorry.
 	pkg_add: 1 package addition failed

Does anyone feel like fixing pkg_add (the program, that is)?
