|Exactly this is implemented. Are you pulling my leg? See examples below.

no, I don't :-) Sorry, I obviously got mixed up with (old) versions of whois.

My alias is pointing to something that still doesn't know about the -r flag.
	bash$ rw -r as760
	./whois: illegal option -- r
	usage: whois [-a] [-g] [-v] [-h hostname] key ...

Again, sorry for wasting bandwidth.
