Ok, thanks, I tried this and works fine.

Maybe a list of strings in the form 
$server_options.prep = {"with/using/...","at/to...",...}

this is how is implemented in source code and avoids the dependence
Maybe someone wants to replace the english prepositions instead of
making aliases.
A question...
	Does the server 'know' what each preposition means? Can you enter more
or less prepositions or change the order?
