I'm not gonna fight about that "in_size < 6" check. I think it is not
needed, I understand your point but still disagree but it is something
where I can live with having it.

I kind of disagree also with allowing messages longer than the command
size but it does not have to be in the scope of this commit and actually
should be a separate discussion if we ever going to do something about
it.

Thanks for the patience!
