Backwards-compatibility testing! My initial efforts in July revealed
some serious bugs (which we fixed); unfortunately, I got busy
finishing my thesis and moving to San Francisco and haven't finished
new-client-old-server test infrastructure, but given the bugs we

without a way to automatically verify behavior of old clients with new
servers and vice versa.
