All the details aren't in a spec yet, but the binary protocol is
extensible. There's a single byte for commands, and this is a
natural place to provide extensions.
There were a couple of interesting multi-invalidation options
briefly discussed. We should figure out which one makes the most
sense in a different thread. Choosing how to express it within each
protocol is the easy part. :)
