Right. When buzz is turned off, this feature is not advertised in  
caps or disco#info, and buzz is ignored when receiving such a packet.  
Switching on/off even works when the client is already connected.

When trying to send a buzz to a client that does not advertise this  
feature, the command is rejected locally.
