I recall this coming up after 1.0 and something about the way this was
implemented would require a 2.0 to change. I am not sure how true
that is given some of the other changes we have managed to make since
then. I am pretty sure this information is not transmitted from the
server to client currently though, so it is not a trivial matter to
just add it.
