Great stuff there. I like your initiative, but any plans to phase out old or obsoleted features?
Not really, I'll scrap everything in one blow when I move to ADC...if it
works out, fine, if not...

And while I'm at it, why not scrap the old $get commands and consistently use UTF-8 for filenames. All (?) clients use the filename they got from the $SR without decoding/encoding it so by using UTF-8 (or any other encoding) doesn't matter to the remote system (except that some characters may look like crap :). I've used UTF-8 encoded filenames nearly two years already...
Well, adding utf8 didn't break anything really, and dc++'s code became only
minimally more complex because of the new commands so...
Not everyone's using bzip2, and not everyone knows how to do it either, so
mandating it for lists would mean fewer clients...(although the
pseudo-huffman encoding is about the most stupid I've seen for a long
