Client should terminate ID string sent during protocol version exchange
with CR LF (carriage return, line feed) rather than only LF, as is done
in the current version. RFC 2453
(http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4253#section-4.2) suggests that CR LF
should be used to terminate the sent line while either CR LF or just LF
may be expected in a received ID string (for compatibility with older
protocol versions).
