I wasn't advocating version numbers either, merely that there could be a
good reason to add some client->server communication for the server to
make better decisions about serving that particular client. I agree
that a capabilities listing (much like SMTP et al use) is a much better
way to handle it. However, the rub comes in defining those capabilities
in a consistent yet extensible way.
