The problem with an "abort code" is that the server is not reading
anything at all during sending. Adding reading for the abort code
should probably slow down the protocol a lot.

Another way to do this is to open another connection and send a 'kill'
command on the old query id.  If the abort is not done frequently,
this is a much more efficient solution.
