Yes you can suppress the remote get with a flag, but lets first think  
about why we need a remote get at all for PutMapCommand.  We need it  
for PutKeyValueCommand since we return the old value.  We need it for  
RemoveCommand since we return the old value. Etc.  But for  
PutMapCommand?!? Hmm...
