Deprecate --remote-host innobackupex option in favour of --stream

Registered by Stewart Smith on 2012-01-10

Docs and --help should indicate that --remote-host is deprecated and will be removed in future version, and that --stream should be used instead.

The --remote-host option has in the past been buggy and tricky to maintain. It's also really hard to test, adding a fair amount of complexity if we were to test it properly. Having the streaming backups on the other hand is much easier to test and ensure correctness with. There is also nothing that --remote-host provides that streaming does not.

Obviously, we only want to warn in 1.6 that we're going to remove it in 2.1, not actually remove it.
