I don't really get what you want to achieve with this. The protocol will be
slow down evolution (hopefully) soon, while the clients will continue
releasing at a similar rhythm. It took long enough to decouple the protocol
version from being bumped each client release, now doing the inverse
coupling makes no sense.
