Right now there's _zero_ code for any of this in the server.  It's 
completely unnecessary -- the protocol and the server code are flexible 
enough to do support all sorts of interesting applications with but 
miniscule modifications on the client side.

Why create unnecessary complexity?  A slight patch to the client -- 
that's already been written -- is all I'm arguing for.
