Pre-1.0, our stated compatibility promise is that a server and client
that are no younger than one minor revision apart will work together.

So, a 0.24 client will work with a 0.23, 0.24, or 0.25 server. A 0.20
server will work with a 0.19, 0.20, or 0.21 client. Outside that, all
bets are off. Once we approach 1.0 though, we won't be expecting
everyone to keep up with bleeding edge like this any more.
