Hello,

It could be interesting to include a "client string" in the protocol, which could be used to identified alternative clients.

Like bittorrent does Wink

The Bitcoin network protocol was designed to be extremely flexible. It can be used to create timed transactions, escrow transactions, multi-signature transactions, etc. The current features of the client only hint at what will be possible in the future.

The sub_version_num field looks like it allows that.

BitcoinJ appears to use it.
