Alright, it's about time something is done to the way
the searchbots work..
The current way it works is butt-ugly and inefficient,
and therefore also not generally accepted.
Here's my suggestion:
h>c: $Lock EXTENDEDPROTOCOLABCABC Pk=BLAH
c>h: $Supports zSearch
h>c: $Supports zSearch
c>h: [maybe a MyINFO here?]$zSearch 22.214.171.124:1234
This way you wouldn't need to log in the
client(searchbot!) like a regular user and waste
bandwith by retrieving userlist etc etc. It's a
generally much nicer and faster way of dealing with
Adding a MyINFO there is interesting. Even if it only
contains the sharesize of the user, the hub can
disregard the user's search if it does not approve of
the size. With a <++ it's even better, however this
would be rather hard to grab from the client in a nice
This would only work with active searches, yes. IMHO
it's fair enough if passive users can't multi-hub
What do you think..?
