I think we need a version field anyway; obviously the protocol will 
change over time.  Major crypto changes notwithstanding, we need a way 
to make changes to the protocol without breaking everything.  Look at 
TypeKey, for example.  There is a version field in the TypeKey 
protocol, precisely so that servers know what version of the protocol 
clients can handle and can respond appropriately.
