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

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. EWallets are like banks -- a central organization has complete control over your money. You shouldn't put much money in EWallets.

The sub_version_num field looks like it allows that.

BitcoinJ appears to use it.
