    We're not going to expose the network protocol. For two reasons:
    - it works really well (we're proud of this)
    - it is really ugly (we're not proud of this :)

    A read only client isn't read only, it has to be read/write to update the
    out of date copy.

    Believe me, if there was an easy way to give away a version that was not
    a problem we would have long since done that.
