There is support for server capabilities and client capabilities.
Extension options are:
This protocol may be extended in three ways, in decreasing order of
* Items may be added to any tuple. An old implementation will
ignore the extra items.
* Named extensions may be expressed at connection initiation time
by the client or server.
* The protocol version may be bumped. Clients and servers can then
choose to any range of protocol versions.

Yes. It doesn't use skels but another similar syntax with a slightly
different marshalling syntax.
