How about:
  echo -n hello | sendpage -p v1

  printf hello | sendpage -p -v 1

The "echo hello" is actually sending:
which sendpage is dutifully taking and sending on sending.  If you don't
want sendpage to send the new-lines, you can't give it a new-line.

Do you really need something on stdin?  If so, a way to "remove" the \n
might be to use xargs?

echo hello | xargs sendpage -p v1
