* Protocol_version_header - protocol-aware version negotiation Protocol_version_header is a small library that houses magic numbers for various protocols. It exposes a =negotiate= function that is magic number aware, returning human readable error messages when negotiation fails. This library is used directly by =Rpc= and =Krb= so the common mistake of mismatching clients and servers can be detected.
