I have a -00 draft (I mailed it at least once to the list), but it didn't meet several people's needs. My conclusion was that the draft needed almost a complete rewrite, and this is no longer just an update but a complete new specification. I haven't had a chance to go back to it. If someone is dying to take over, I have XML that can be used. I'm happy to have my name dropped from the list in that case. > (consider it).

If we go that way, it might be that old clients will work fine with new servers. James seemed to suggest at one point that during a transition period, the way to get there would just be for servers or clients or both to ignore parts of the new protocol. This answer makes my teeth hurt, but maybe we can get something cleaner.
