Ok, something like (untested):
quad word support in stream API:
Zserv 64bit ifflags:
Only fly in the ointment is that the zserv command field is actually
just one byte. I must have confused lower byte of length with the
command field somehow (could have sworn it was two bytes).
So we don't have a convenient version field. We can instead set the
current command field to ~0 maybe (unknown command for any unmodified
clients), then after that we can diverge. Ie, the zserv header will
byte: extended zserv marker -> ~0
Old clients will just think it's a command they don't recognise.
Sound like a plan? (Hasso?)
