Changes (by phk):

  * milestone:  Varnish 2.1 release => After Varnish 2.1


 This was a semi-deliberate decision and admittedly it may be wrong.

 The reasoning was to make it easier to write scripts, in essense allowing
 you to
 {{{ echo "url.purge $foo" | nc localhost 9090 }}}
 like access.

 Changing it at this point will break any script that actually checks the
 CLI return code, so I am not convinced that the convenience of changing it
 outweighs the number of scripts we will break.

 At the very least, it is a change for a major version, 3.0 in other words.
