Well, speculatively (and being too lazy to look at the source at this
moment to see if it already does it), is the  protocol itself versioned,
so that in the event of incompatible releases, an informative error along
the lines of "protocol version mismatch, min. 2.2 proto required, found
(no version - old protocol|version2.1)" could appear in logs?
