how would your client (or you yourself) know they had upgraded/changed clients?

anyway, might it not just be easier to handle client version discovery in the same manner as an offline user last query; would it be possible for the target's server to 
automatically reply with the version information the target's client provided on login (highest prioroty or last active resource i'd assume?).
