That's pretty much what it does if you enable progress meter. I realize you
don't necessarily want that one, but we could have a switch that still
tells the server to measure the size, but not actually print the output?
While it costs a bit of overhead to do that, that's certainly something
that's a lot more safe than ignoring errors.
